Transcript of Art History Timeline

Early Pop Art
*Pop Art was born in the 1950s

*Created among artists who called themselves the Independent Group, which was part of the Institute of Contemporary Art in London

*Pop Art appreciates popular culture and It does not critique the consequences of materialism and consumerism; it recognizes its presence as a natural fact.

*Rebelling against abstract art, they wanted to express their optimism after so much hardship in a youthful visual language. Pop Art celebrated the United Generation of Shopping.
