A little about the Pop Art Movement:
”The term first appeared in Britain during the 1950s and referred to the interest of a number of artists in the images of mass media, advertising, comics and consumer products. The 1950s were a period of optimism in Britain following the end of war-time rationing, and a consumer boom took place. Influenced by the art seen in Eduardo Paolozzi’s 1953 exhibition Parallel between Art and Life at the Institute for Contemporary Arts, and by American artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, British artists such as Richard Hamilton and the Independent Group aimed at broadening taste into more popular, less academic art. Hamilton helped organize the ‘Man, Machine, and Motion’ exhibition in 1955, and ‘This is Tomorrow’ with its landmark image Just What is it that makes today’s home so different, so appealing? (1956). Pop Art therefore coincided with the youth and pop music phenomenon of the 1950s and ’60s, and became very much a part of the image of fashionable, ‘swinging’ London. Peter Blake, for example, designed album covers for Elvis Presley and the Beatles and placed film stars such as Brigitte Bardot in his pictures in the same way that Warhol was immortalizing Marilyn Monroe in the USA. Pop art came in a number of waves, but all its adherents – Joe Trilson, Richard Smith, Peter Phillips, David Hockney and R.B. Kitaj – shared some interest in the urban, consumer, modern experience.”
