Pop Art is regarded as one of the most influential movements in modern art. What began as a revolt against mainstream approaches to art and culture evolved into a wholesale interrogation of modern society, consumer culture, and the role of the artist and artwork. From Lichtenstein's comic-book aesthetics to Warhol's images of Marilyn, this updated and expanded overview examines the origins, pioneers, and stand-out pieces of a movement which resonates to this day.
