The Pop Revolution: The People Who Radically Transformed the Art World
Learn everything there is to know about pop art.
"This book", writes the author Alice Goldfarb Marquis, "is a social history of Pop Art, a group portrait of both the artists and the people who made some of them rich and famous in just a few years, while setting in motion the drastically altered way art has been marketed and appreciated-in the monetary and aesthetic sense-up to the present day."
Included are Roy Lichtenstein and his "Blam-Pow!" comics panels; shy, shrewd Andy Warhol; the power couple of Leo and Ileana Castelli; collector Robert Scull, whose own dealer called him "vulgar"; and a cast ranging from Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Robert Indiana to pioneering dealer Ivan Karp, controversial curator Henry Geldzahler, media guru Marshall McLuhan, Tom Wolfe, and many others.
