Pop Art by Klaus Honnef is published by Taschen and provides an overview of this artistic movement
Pop Art took key elements of mass communication and the mass-produced commodities that were shaping the 20th century, and boldly mixed them with fine art. Suddenly ordinary objects were given a colorful, new context and countless memorable images were created, and then embraced by the mass media that had inspired them.
This book features many of the most famous and infamous Pop Art images. Roy Lichtenstein’s M-Maybe, Jasper Johns’ Flag, Ed Ruscha’s Standard Station and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s soup can. Even in this handy little guide to Pop Art, Warhol appears larger than life more than 20 years after his death.
Publishers and writers are still attempting to grasp Pop Art today with frequent retrospectives of the key artists and themes. This book is an easy way of understanding an art movement that is still evolving.
