pop art

Written Assignment

In the history of Western art, new movements were often reactions to earlier ones. In the United States, Pop Art in the 1960’s seems to have been, in some ways, a reaction against Abstract Expressionism from the 1950’s.

Research the two movements and write a brief paper. Include:

  • A very concise description of what the movements were about and what the work looked like.
  • How was the relationship of the artist to the work different between the two movements?
  • Choose a historically significant work from each of the movements. Compare them, and explain how they illustrate the differences in how the respective artists thought about their works.
