TRACE & DESIGN!
INSPIRED BY THE EVERY DAY
The growing popularity of television in American homes in the late 1950s and early 1960s fed a culture of celebrity-worship across the United States. Now able to view their favorite actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians from the comfort of their living rooms, the public became captivated by people who represented the American dream of money, glamour, and success.
Pop artists seized on the culture of celebrity worship, portraying cultural icons and political figures from a range of media.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Manhattan, New York, United States
Both artists used
"Appropriation" - the intentional borrowing, copying, and alteration of preexisting images and objects.
Both repeated mundane, everyday images from popular culture—As Warhol stated, “Pop artists did images that anyone walking down the street would recognize in a split second—comics, picnic tables, men’s pants, celebrities, refrigerators, Coke bottles.”
Campbell's Soup Cans
1962. Synthetic polymer paint on thirty-two canvases, Each canvas 20 x 16" (50.8 x 40.6 cm)
Andy Warhol was a fashion illustrator, painter, printmaker, sculptor, magazine publisher, filmmaker, and photographer of his times.
What was Warhol representing by arranging the soup cans in this order?
When Warhol first exhibited these Campbell’s Soup Cans in 1962, they were displayed together on shelves, like products in a grocery aisle. In this work, he mimicked the repetition and uniformity of advertising by carefully reproducing the same image across each individual canvas.
Warhol took Marilyn Monroe as his subject in different mediums, silkscreening the actress’s image multiple times in a grid in bright colors and in black and white (life and death). By repeating Monroe’s image (and that of other celebrities) over and over again, Warhol acknowledged his own fascination with a society in which personas could be manufactured, commodified, and consumed like products.
1962. Acrylic on canvas
What do you think the reason is for multiplying Marilyn in so many of his works? What would be the reason for half color/half black&white?
Roy Lichtenstein appropriated comic book imagery in many of his early paintings.
1963. Oil and synthetic polymer paint on canvas,
Working by hand, Lichtenstein painstakingly imitated the mechanized process of commercial printing. First he transferred a sketch onto a canvas with the help of a projector. He then drew in black outlines and filled them with primary colors or with circles,
simulating the Ben-day dots used in the mechanical reproduction of images.
Turkey Shopping Bag
1964. Screenprint on shopping bag with handles
The turkey depicted on this shopping bag was mostly likely inspired by a newspaper advertisement.
Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and other Pop artists created multiples for the 1964 exhibition
, which highlighted the differences and similarities between the actual consumer objects and Pop artists’ depictions of them. The exhibition was designed to resemble a supermarket, complete with aisles, shelves, and a checkout counter. Plastic and real food items were displayed alongside artists’ depictions of them. Artworks were priced and sold cheaply, further blurring the line between art, commerce, and consumption. These bags were sold for 12 dollars each.
Based on what you have learned about Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, what is your personal opinion of their art? Do you like it or dislike it? Explain
DEBATE: Andy Warhol famously said “everyone is an artist.” With a friend, debate Warhol’s claim. Do you agree or disagree, and what reasons do you have for your opinion?
REFLECT. Create a list of 5 criteria for art.
