Pop art

Redirected from Pop Art

Pop art is an artistic movement[?] that is a rejection of abstract expressionism and aims to return to figurative art while celebrating popular mass culture. It also is to some extent a satire of the philistine acquisitiveness of official art institutions for example, early pop artists induced important museums to invest large sums of money in paintings of mundane subjects, done with acrylic paint on plywood, which quickly deteriorated. This movement started in the 1950s and gained strength in the 1960s and was centered in England and the United States early on.
