Editorial Reviews


'In this colourful and important study, Cécile Whiting measures contemporary understanding against historical analysis to unravel the role of gender in the creation and reception of Pop Art ... a valuable overview of the challenges and repercussions of the Pop Art movement.' Museums and Galleries Magazine

Book Description

When Pop Art paintings depicted Campbell soup cans or comic-book scenes, did they stoop to the level of their sources, or did they transform the detritus of consumer culture into high art? Whiting declares this issue fundamentally irresolvable and instead takes the question itself as the object of her analysis.
