This series introduces the major movements in late nineteenth and twentieth-century art. Each book is illustrated with works from the Tate and other major collections around the world. Mass culture, popular taste and kitsch were the provocative themes of Pop art. Artists used mass-produced objects and photographic images to make a connection between art and the post-war world of consumerism. This study follows the development of Pop as an art form that celebrated the glamour of the newly commercialist Western world, whilst acknowledging its superficiality.
