A major reappraisal of the formative years of Pop art, this catalogue features eight lengthy essays discussing such topics as the stylistic links between Abstract Expressionism and the early compositions of Rauschenberg, Rivers and other Pop artists, the gradual legitimization of popular culture as a source of artistic imagery, the impact of art education programs on postwar trends, the responses of influential critics to the emerging Pop movement, and gay iconography in the work of Johns and Warhol. Accompanying the texts are good reproductions of some 160 paintings, drawings and three-dimensional compositions (including numerous lesser-known works) by Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Kaprow, Ruscha, Rosenquist, Dine and 15 other prominent figures.
