The Prints and Illustrated Books Collection at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, is a rich repository of pop art from the early 1960s to the early 1970s. This volume accompanies an exhibition on show in the Spring of 1999, comprising 60 examples by American icons such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and by such Europeans as Richard Hamilton, Niki de Saint Phalle, Gerhard Richter, Eduardo Paolozzi and Sigmar Polke, and are organized by mass media consumer culture, politics, erotica and other themes. Wendy Weitman's introductory essay emphasizes the intense interchange among young artists that led to a ricochet of pop imagery and ideology back and forth across the Atlantic.
