Pop Art ... How it all began?

Pop paintings for sale - Pop Art was a movement that departed from the
cliches of boldness so often portrayed in modern art. The Pop artists
disconnected themselves from the idea that art must contain meaning in the
abstract. The artists most recognized and closely associated with Pop art
include Andy Warhol, Roy ichtenstein, !laes "ldenburg, and Richard
#amilton. These artists found success both in $urope and the %nited &tates.
As it e'isted then, and as it e'ists now, Pop Art was a regeneration and
renewal from the nearly two decade reign of Abstract Art.

with an interest in Cubism and Dadaism. They admired the singular artwor+s
of Pablo Picasso,s Plate with Wafers and &tuart -avis, uc+y &tri+e. They

Abstract art.
