Icons of Pop Art
Pop Art seems both timeless and of the moment. Forever linked with the euphoric America of the 1960s, it is a movement both celebrated and reviled, synonymous with gaudy colors, provocation and exhibitionism.
Pop art always guarantees controversy: is it genius or a scam?
Now the Musée Maillol allows spectators to sharpen their understanding with this panorama of 100 masterpieces from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York shown in Paris for the very first time. Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein are among the greats featured in the exhibition, Pop Art Icons that Matter, which also unveils artists unknown in France!
