  • Sketchbook

    If you want to understand Pop art -- how it evolved, what it was all about, and meet the Movers and Shakers -- this is a splendid social history of the movement that shook up America in the 60s. Initially Pop outraged the usual suspects, particularly NYT critics John Canaday and Hilton Kramer. That paper played almost no part in what's now called the triumph of post-war 2 American art. Which no one remembers today. Journalist-critic Marquis introduces the vital (and under appreciated) art dealer [...]

    I recently attended the Roy Lichtenstein art exhibit being held at the Art Institute of Chicago. His art made a pleasing impression on me. At the Art Institute, assorted books were for sale, and I got this one, a social history of the Pop Art movement.I've wondered if a fair amount of modern art is a big put-on. I don't care much for Abstract Art. A bunch of lines, squares, and even drips of different colors? Or take a famous (or infamous) work of Dadaism: Duchamp's Fountain, which is a urinal. [...]

    highly readable account of the New York scene from 1959 to 1987 with anecdotes of the key artists and the people who made them rich and famous. The exuberance and revolutions of the 60's are colored by the market, advertising, gimmicks, wit, irreverence , a new iconography which reflects an accelerating technology and whose vibrant imagery provides an antidote to abstract expressionism. A good introduction to "art as bellwhether for social, cultural, economic and political changes affecting Amer [...]

    A wonderfully candid synopsis of an era that brought about the most radical mode of artistic expression: Pop Art. Enjoyed it very much; very easy to read and the transitions between events and characters is done masterfully. Drives the point home often by showing the costs/sales in dollars (including inflation, oftentimes). Really gives a polaroid shot. Made me realize why I dislike the Brillo boxes in museums. Enjoyed it!

    I guess I wanted more on everyone else, rather than just Warhol, at the end, but maybe she would have covered that in her unfinished final chapter. I did not know the extent of critical rejection at the start. Also, the society and money involved did not greatly interest me. I need to read some more on postmodernism, in all arts. I like both types of art referred to- abstract expressionism and pop art- but the drive to find art wherever you live, however you live, is what I like most.

    An engaging account of the artists, gallery owners, and collectors that shaped and created the pop art movement. You really get to know the characters, so it's an entertaining read the whole way. It's particularly interesting in that the changes to art during the pop movement continue to influence art to this day.
