I just caught the Monet/Lichtenstein exhibit at the LACMA. You get to see 4 of Monet’s famous Rouen Cathedral paintings next to 4 paintings by Lichtenstein interpreting-appropriating the same subject and theme. This was an unexpected surprise (but try explaining the why of it to your 4 year old daughter, as I did). The Monet paintings are seminal in the history of impressionist art. And Lichenstein’s take on them is pure Pop Art.

    Pop Art has been one of several very original breaks of American artists into art history. It remains a major contribution to perceiving art as a universal phenomenon and not just a domain reserved to the leisure class, the enligthened middle class or just wealthy collectors. However, making intelligent references to previous revolutions (e.g. Impressionists, in this case) strengthens the fundamental concept that, at the core, art is continuity, as Clement Greenberg wrote sometime ago.

Renowned Sixties pop artist Gerald Laing is launching an exhibition of paintings and drawings documenting the public image of the late singer Amy Winehouse. Fifty years ago Laing became famous for his iconic images of Brigitte Bardot and Anna Karina before turning his hand to sculpture. His picture of Winehouse kissing then husband Blake Fielder Civil was the first in a series of paintings he produced of the singer. The complete collection of paintings and drawings goes on display at Thomas Gibson Fine Art in London’s Mayfair from October 11th.

I adore Keith Haring’s African masks and body paintings. Here’s a wonderful example!

    This is an amazing piece of artwork. I really like the intricate detail and the work that was put into this incredible mask.

    I had never seen such work by Haring. This is a stunning piece
  • Vittorio Masoni Vittorio Masoni Nov. 20, 2011
    Yes, it is inspired by Black African art (Benin and Ivory Coast) and is beautiful even in Western Art terms. Moreover, it is wonderful in this epoch of heavy materialism, to see a piece that retains the spiritual quality of its source of inspiration.

THE FATHER OF POP ART, dies at 89. Richard Hamilton, a British painter and printmaker whose sly, trenchant take on consumer culture and advertising made him a pioneering figure in Pop Art, and who designed the cover of the Beatles’ “White Album,” died on Tuesday at his home near Oxford. He was 89.

Pop Art was introduced to Italy in around 1964. One of the great Italian pop artists was Mimmo Rotella. His preferred medium was décollage carfted from torn posters. Awesome stuff that, when seen today, stilll seems fresh and relevant. He passed away in 2006.

    Did you notice Rotella's fashion pieces? The full length evening gown at 1:05 is extraordinary!
