Yr 9 Portrait Project Pop Art and the Portrait
Pop Art In England in the 1950s, an art movement emerged called Pop Art and made its way to the United States during the 1960s. Objects and images that seemed ordinary and everyday were suddenly acceptable as the subject of works of art, for example, advertisements, comic strips, and supermarket products. A classic example of this was when Andy Warhol chose to paint soup cans. Pop artists were fascinated by mass produced objects and using images or objects that they found as inspiration.
