Pop Art Art based on modern popular culture and the mass media. Had its origins in England in the 1950s and made its way to the United States during the 1960s.
Famous Artists of the Pop Art Movement Richard Hamilton (British, 1922-) Andy Warhol (American, 1928-1987) Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997) Claes Oldenburg (American, 1929-) (3D work) Jasper Johns (American, 1930-) Robert Rauschenberg (American, 1925-).
Richard Hamilton Known for his powerful and inventive work that commented on the state of British postwar consumer culture, Hamilton was probably most famous for "Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?“ from 1956.
Andy Warhol When Warhol first exhibited Campbell’s Soup Cans, in 1962, each of the thirty-two canvases rested on a shelf mounted on the wall, like groceries in a store. The number of paintings corresponds to the varieties of soup then sold by the Campbell Soup Company.
Roy Lichtenstein Lichtenstein based many of his early paintings on imagery he found in comic books. The source for this work is Run for Love! published by DC Comics in 1962, the cover of which the artist significantly altered to arrive at the finished composition. Drowning Girl. 1963.
