WHY HAS POP ART, a movement initially ridiculed by art critics and historians, outlasted them all to become, arguably, modern art’s most “modern” art?
Pop Art, the art movement that started in the early 1960s, has proven to be as popular today as it ever was in its heyday, with its signature look of bold primary colors, oversized printing dots, graphic faces and heroic figures appearing seemingly everywhere in our culture, both low and high, as auction prices for works by Pop’s most popular practitioners—Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Mel Ramos—continue to set record highs. Pop Art continues to speak to us, as we increasingly live our lives in front of computer screens and cellphones filled with imagery as “pop” as Pop Art’s greatest works.
That and more is covered in “A HISTORY OF POP: The Most Modern Art” webinar by pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), Monday, February 22 @ 8:00pm EST:
