Lively, informative and entertaining, this book is a riveting insight into the infamous Pop Art movement of the 1950s. Included in this group portrait are the famous: Roy Lichtenstein and his “Blam-Pow” comics panels, Andy warhol, shy, shrewd and tough as nails, and the power couple of Leo Castelli and Ileana sonnabend. It also includes the infamous, such as the collector Robert Scull, who bought so heavily that his own dealer deemed him “vulgar”; and a variegated cast ranging from artists Jasper Johns and Robert Indiana to controversial curator Henry geldzahler, media guru Marshall McLuhan and many, many others.
The Pop Revolution is the first to approach Pop Art not only as an aesthetic upheaval, but also as a bellwether for the social, cultural, economic and political changes affecting America and Europe in the late twentieth century. As Marquis notes, the figures involved in creating and promoting the movement “set off the ‘culture boom’ of the 1960s, and were indispensable to the success, not only of Pop art, but of all the varied approaches to art that followed.” Rich in historical insights and unpublished information, The Pop Revolution is an extremely readable account of one of art's liveliest chapters.
