Pop Art


Pop Art refers to a post-war movement connecting art with popular culture. Billboard signs, comic books, and movie stars were just some of the subjects chosen by pop artists, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg, to name a few, to illustrate the contemporary world in which they lived. Largely characterized by bold and strident colors combined with a cool-eyed appropriation of contemporary imagery, pop art sought to highlight both the negative and positive facets of modern culture. The newest installment in the Art Essentials series explores this phenomenon, which had its roots in post-war British and American consumerism before spreading and capturing the imagination of young artists. After establishing the origins of the form, the book delves into subjects like the role of stardom and glamor in pop art and how pop art vocabulary grew to include political figures and even war imagery. As written by Flavia Frigeri, an authority on the subject, this book is an essential guide for anyone fascinated by the pop art movement.

Ženy umelkyne (Umenie v skratke)


Ženy sú dlhodobo obľúbeným námetom umelcov, ale ich prínos ako umelkýň je dodnes nedocenený. Nemusia už síce tvoriť anonymne či pod mužským pseudonymom, ale ešte v roku 1989 položila skupina Guerilla Girls newyorskej verejnosti otázku: „Musia byť ženy nahé, aby sa dostali do Metropolitného múzea?" Odpoveď na túto otázku nájdete aj vo svojej knižnici - stačí si prelistovať dejiny umenia. Ešte lepšie však urobíte, ak siahnete po knižke, ktorá reviduje tradičný kánon a predstaví vám tvorbu päťdesiatich významných umelkýň od 16. storočia až po súčasnosť. Artemisia Gentileschi, Georgia O´Keeffe, Frida Kahlo či Louise Bourgeois... Schválne, ktoré z týchto mien poznáte?
