Description
Information
Pop Art is the most important 20th-century art movement. A shift from the archetype to the stereotype, from the exalted to the everyday, it brought Modernism to the masses, making art sexy and fun with Coke cans and comics. Today, in our age of selfies and social networking, we are still living in a world defined by Pop.

Full of brand new interviews with the most important living Pop Artists, Sooke's book traces the movement's surprising origins and describes the great works by Warhol, Lichtenstein and other key figures, revealing Pop's often overlooked global story, forgotten female artists, and afterlife today.

'Sooke is an immensely engaging character. He has none of the weighty self-regard that often afflicts art experts and critics; rather he approaches his subjects with a questioning, open, exploratory attitude.' The Times

'A brilliant account . . . So poetically precise in its evocations of the cut-outs . . . so tender in its sympathy.' Peter Conrad on Henri Matisse: A Second Life
