Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Pop Art was the 1960s. It was the SLAM, BANG, POW of Roy Liechtenstein and Andy Warhol's Campbell Soup cans. It was a mechanical look at a world of fast popular culture. It was the USA for better or worse. Bolton gets most of this right in her narrative description of the genre, and the bright color images selected add the rest. This is a British import, though, and the surprise is the selection of British pop artists not usually thought of by Americans as part of the cannon. Patrick Caulfield is a revelation, but David Hockney is a pop-influenced realist who doesn't quite fit within such confines. While the content is thinner than it could be on individual artists, the book is still a good starting point for young art enthusiasts. 2000, Peter Bedrick Books, $16.95. Ages 10 to 14. Reviewer: Kathleen Karr
VOYA
Lobster telephones, bottles of Coca Cola, fragmented faces, and combinations of brush strokes all come together in this series that highlights the characteristics and artists of major artistic movements. Each volume gives the historical context of the period and explains its significance. After this general overview, subsequent pages are devoted to the individual artists of the movement, displaying some of their more famous paintings and pieces accompanied by a short biography and commentary. The addition of a basic glossary, well-developed index, and time line make these books a starting point for research. Each volume also suggests Web sites, books, and even galleries for further information. Works such as Claes Oldenburgh's "Leaning Fork with Meatball and Spaghetti I" and Andy Warhol's three-foot tall depiction of a can of Campbell's tomato soup fill the pages of Pop Art. This volume highlights the whimsy and intensity with which artists in the pop movement viewed the world around them. The vivid colors and graphics depicted on these pages make this overview of the pop art period come alive. This series would be a fine addition to a public or school library interested in expanding its art collection. Other titles cover cubism and surrealism. This series easily could stand alone for a more basic research project or could serve as a springboard toward more in-depth research. Only the brevity of the books coupled with the complexity of the subject make this resource merely a starting point. Glossary. Index. Illus. Photos. Source Notes. Further Reading. Chronology. VOYA CODES: 5Q 3P J (Hard to imagine it being any better written; Will appeal with pushing; Junior High, defined asgrades 7 to 9). 2000, Peter Bedrick, 32p. PLB . Ages 13 to 15.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Good introductions to revolutionary movements in modern art. Each volume begins with a brief, illustrated history of the style, its influences, and founders, followed by 10 double-page spreads focusing on individual artists. These spreads, arranged in chronological order, include some biographical background and an analysis of two or three examples of each person's work. Informative texts are accompanied by well-chosen, vibrant reproductions representative of each style. Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, and Robert Delaunay are some of the painters featured in Cubism while Pop examines the work of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Patrick Caulfield, among others. Supplemental information is featured in colorful sidebars and a final spread includes the work of several additional artists associated with the movements. Each volume also includes a useful table of contents and a list of galleries.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
