Pop art

Pop art, in reaction to and against abstract expressionism, is characterized by the representation of objects or symbols of everyday life. It seems that this movement made its first timid appearance in Great Britain, towards the 50s, before crossing the Atlantic and reaching the shores of the United States nearly a decade later. In their works, these artists sought their inspiration principally in popular culture and advertising, to depict and mock consumer society. One of the icons of pop art, Campbell's Soup Can by Andy Warhol, created in 1962, is no more than a series of soup cans, as its title so declares. We also owe to him of many silk screens of American stars, such as Marilyn Monroe and Elvis.
