Modern Art:
Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art
 



American Abstract Expressionist painters grew rich in the 1940s; working on a grand scale, they produced astonishing images that concentrated on colour and form rather than subject. In the 1950s-60s young artists, in the USA and Britain, came up with a sharply contrasting style: Pop Art, based around magazines and TV culture, was gimmicky and fun, with a biting edge.
