Overview

Large, colorful, and bold, Pop Art is particularly appealing to younger viewers. This engaging introduction to the Pop Art movement-from its inception in the 1960s through the 1980s-takes readers on a colorful journey in which Coca Cola bottles, tubes of toothpaste, soup cans, shower curtains, movie stars, comic books, and cartoon characters are the stuff of creativity and inspiration. The book considers work by artists such as Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Edward Ruscha, and Andy Warhol. An inviting text and dynamic format reveals to young readers how art reflects the world around them and how they can create their own art through observations they make in their daily lives.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up- An excellent introduction to this artistic movement. Demilly traces its beginnings to the work of early-20th-century French and German artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, and Fernand L├ęger. He then shows how Pop Art grew to comment particularly on American society, both in its glamour and its excesses. Each clear, one-page explanation of the various aspects of Pop Art is set opposite a one-half- or full-page, high-quality color reproduction of a famous work, from the instantly familiar Beatles's Sgt. Pepper's album cover to Mel Ramos's provocative Velveeta and Robert Rauschenberg's Retroactive II . Additional, smaller reproductions of equally well-known works, such as Jasper Johns's Flag and Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can I , are also included. Some of the illustrations contain nudity. The visual images are more prominent than the text, an appropriate design choice for a book commenting on a style known for its in-your-face effect. Several quotes from Pop artists emphasize a point being made by the author, and mini-biographies of the 10 individuals whose art is featured help to put their work in perspective. This is a clear, easy-to-follow description of an often-misunderstood artistic style. The use of high-quality paper results in better reproductions than those found in Judy Galens and Mark Swartz's Artists: From Michelangelo to Maya Lin (Gale, 2001). Readers with a fascination for modern art will welcome this well-written book.-Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI
