Pop Art

This upstart movement of the 1960s tapped images from popular culture and commercial products and boldly celebrated them as the source of its imagery.

Playfulness, humor, and irony were at the core of these artists’ reactions to the serious Abstract Expressionists. However, the decade of the 1960s produced a whirlwind of other movements including Op Art, Hard Edge, Minimalism, and shaped canvas. By the late 1960s the number of galleries in New York dedicated to Pop had all but disappeared, leaving only Warhol and a few others still in the limelight.
