A noteworthy international review of the Pop art movement, this catalogue features illustrations of more than 200 paintings, prints, collages, mixed-media assemblages and sculptures by a host of major American, British, French and German artists, including Lichtenstein, Warhol, Hockney, Wesselmann, Blake, Tinguely, Rosenquist, Johns, Hamilton, Paolozzi, Arman, Kitaj, Polke and Oldenburg. Two introductory texts analyzing the emergence of Pop art and its pointed use of kitsch imagery precede seven scholarly essays closely examining the movement's development in New York and London during the early 1960s, its manifestations in France and Germany, the relationship between Pop art and the Fluxus movement, and the continued vitality of the Pop aesthetic. Biographical profiles of more than 60 artists, a 30-year chronology of major cultural and political events, and anthologies of interviews, critical texts and artists' statements are also included.
