The Pop Object: Still Life Tradition in Pop Art
A major survey of Pop Art from private collections.
Published on the occasion of an exhibition of the same title, The Pop Object is the most comprehensive survey of Pop Art to be organized by theme and historical precedents, with such classic works as Andy Warhol’s Brillo Soap Pads, Robert Arneson’s Oreo Cookie Jar, Claes Oldenburg’s Pie à la Mode, Roy Lichtenstein’s Black Flowers and Wayne Thiebaud’s Gumball Machine.
With more than ninety color illustrations, this large-format book brings together the most important examples of works by artists Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, Marisol, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Wayne Thiebaud, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and many others - from the 1960s to the present.
The still life has often been the stepchild to landscape, history and figurative painting. By examining themes like food and drink, household objects, flowers and body parts, noted art historian John Wilmerding emphasizes Pop’s playfulness and brings the history of the movement right up to date.
