2. What was the Pop Art movement about?
|The Pop Art movement proved|
any type of image could be
turned into art.
Pop Art is described by many as one of the most liberating art movements. Beginning in the late 1950s in Britain and later expanding into America and Europe, Pop Art was the movement that proved that any image could be art; for the first time images from advertisements and news articles were included in works of art. It was an ironic movement, removing previous stereotypes about art. One of the most famous Pop Art artists is Andy Warhol, who was especially famous for his paintings of Campbell’s soup cans.
