rebellion
against
Abstract Expressionism
can you think why?
Abstract Expressionism was seen to be too lofty and high-minded.
Pop Artists believed art should hold a mirror to society and be relevant.
so what kind of art did they create?
Andy

Warhol

Andy Warhol, 'Marilyn Diptych,' 1962
Acrylic on canvas, 205.44 cm × 289.56 cm
WHY...?
BECAUSE...
"When Warhol first exhibited Campbell’s Soup Cans, in 1962, each of the 32 canvases rested on a shelf mounted on the wall,
like groceries in a store.
The number of paintings corresponds to
the varieties of soup
then sold by the Campbell Soup Company. Warhol said of Campbell's soup,
"I used to drink it. I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty years, I guess, the same thing over and over again."
- from MoMA | The Collection | Andy Warhol. Campbell's Soup Cans. 1962
(http://www.moma.org/collection/object.php?object_id=79809)
"This was
a still photograph of Marilyn Monroe
in the 1953 film Niagara. Monroe died, from an overdose of sleeping pills, on 5 August 1962. Between then and the end of that year Warhol made at least 23 silkscreen paintings of her. In the right panel of 'Marilyn Diptych' he has produced
effects of blurring and fading strongly suggestive of the star's demise.
The contrast of this panel, printed in black, with the brilliant colours of the other, also implies a
contrast between life and death.
The
repetition
of the image has the effect
both of reinforcing its impact and of negating it.
- from 'Marilyn Diptych', Andy Warhol | Tate

Roy Lichtenstein
What is the focal point of the artwork?
How is the focal point framed?
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 colours or with circles,
simulating the Ben-day dots used in the mechanical reproduction of images.
Explaining the appeal of comic books, Lichtenstein said, “I was very excited about, and interested in,
the highly emotional content yet detached, impersonal handling of love, hate, war
, etc. in these cartoon images.”

"'Whaam!' is based on an image from
'All American Men of War'
published by DC comics in 1962. By referencing comic scenes, Lichtenstein could present
powerfully charged scenes in an impersonal manner
. In 'Whaam!', he adapted and developed
the original composition
of the comic to produce an intensely stylised painting."
