UK Kirkus Review » From 'Fame ' and 'Hedonism' to 'Troubled Times' McCarthy explores the provocactive period of Pop Art that began late 50s and exploded the art scene. By taking mass produced objects and commercial images and refiguring them as 'art', artists such as Warhol and Lichtenstein blurred the distinctions between 'worthy' and 'unworthy' subject matter. Their work was both a critique and a celebration of the excesses of post-war consumerism and opened the gates to the kingdom called 'kitsch'. This study is an accessible introduction to a crucial epoch and follows Pop Art from it's beginnings in the irreverence of Dada and Surrealism, through to the high-water mark of it's popularity. A well-illustrated and welcome addition to The Tate's expanding new library of straightforward introductions to the major movements in modern art. (Kirkus UK)
