Pop Art

Pop Art rose up in the 1950s and 1960s as a reaction to expressionism.  The movement was especially strong in Britain and the United States.  Artists borrowed imagery from current advertisements, product packaging, labeling, corporate logos, and celebrity photos and dropped it into their art.  This brought contemporary consumerism into the world of art, highlighting the irony of the popular versus the elite.  Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Rauschenberg are some of the artists most commonly associated with the movement.  Pop Art ultimately gave way to, or was even an early participant in, the post-modern art movement.
