A style that depicts contemporary life
Pop Art first appeared in the UK during the 1950s and was the first art form to be dedicated to the popular trends of the day. The artists who were the precursors of the movement were inspired by the decade's nascent consumerism. They built their movement on comic book trends, channelled everyday consumer products, and presented posters for everything from commercials to science fiction films. Heir to the Dadaism movement, pop art aims to give depth to images, reversing their meaning and playing on irony. The last option was championed by the Americans to better denounce mass manipulation. See work by some of the movement's most celebrated artists and geniuses at the Maillol Museum.
Artists who understood their world and wanted to change it
The great artists, those whose names are forever synonymous with the Pop Art movement will be exhibited at the Musée Maillol from September 22, 2017 to January 21, 2018. Go along and admire the works of Roy Lichtenstein, master of printing techniques. He created wonderful works of illusion using the world of comic books as a template. Andy Warhol will also be on display and you can see some of his iconic paintings featuring images of well-known personalities or objects alongside works by thirty other artists who will be featured in this exhibition.
