Big and bold, "Pop Art" is particularly appealing to younger art lovers. This engaging introduction to the Pop Art movement - from its inception in the 1960s up to the 1980s - takes readers on a colourful journey in which Coca Cola bottles, tubes of toothpaste, soup cans, shower curtains, movie stars, comic books and cartoon characters are the stuff of creativity and inspiration. The book considers work by artists such as Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, and Andy Warhol. An inviting text and dynamic format reveal to young readers how art reflects the world around them and how they can create their own art through observations they make in their daily lives.
