Pop art is one of the most recognisable, and recent artistic movements in art history. 'Pop Art' explores the most important works and artists of this explosive movement, and reminds us of its impact on the world today, and argues for its status as an ongoing movement. Leading academic, Bradford R. Collins' insightful text places Pop art within it's cultural context, and is illustrated with works by Andy Warhol , Roy Lichtenstein, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Indiana, James Rosenquist and Tom Wessleman amongst others.
