Selections From The Permanent Collection
The wheel of art history was turning fast when Pop spun to the top in the Sixties, displacing Abstract Expressionism after barely a decade of dominance. After the brooding challenge of abstraction, the contrast of snappy graphics and familiar references was a relief for many, and a magnet for new audiences. High and low met in the galleries and museums, set up by such media-savvy leaders as Andy Warhol, who now forces us to think of art in the supermarket aisle where the Campbell’s soup cans still dominate the shelves, and Roy Lichtenstein, whose Foot and Hand (1964) returns to the medium of “art” printmaking the shading and even pressure of black outlines (no brush or pencil strokes) that he borrowed from the original sources, which included comic books and the cartoons found in bubble gum packages. Larry Rivers pumps the colors of the Fauves into the Mad Men icon of Joe Camel while, perhaps more subtly, Robert Rauschenberg gently lifts from newsprint the headlines and banal photographs of the day’s news (not that new a trope, if you recall the collages of Picasso and Braque, but they did not cloak them in Rauschenberg’s mist).
