Offering a primarily pictorial survey of narrative works produced during the 1960s and early 70s by eleven socially and politically engaged artists working in France, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of some 70 paintings and mixed-media compositions distinguished by their overt commentaries on public figures and events of the period and by their frequent use of cartoon imagery, appropriated photographs and cultural icons. Includes two introductory essays discussing the significance of the style in relation to Pop art and other movements of the time, a selective chronology of political and cultural developments, and recent statements by the artists.
