Pop Art

Pop Art was an international movement that emerged in the 1950s and flourished in the 1960s. Pop artists drew inspiration from sources in popular and commercial mass culture, such a comic books, advertising, and product packaging.  By celebrating such banal imagery, the Pop movement presented a challenge to fine-art traditions and values. Artists associated with Pop include Robert Indiana, James Rosenquist, Marisol, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg.
