This exhibition brings around sixty Pop Art masterpieces to Paris for the first time at the Musée Maillol from 22 September 2017 to 21 January 2018.
The Musée Maillol exhibition focuses on Pop Art in the context of post-war American art, from the beginning of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s, and includes formative figures from the Pop Art movement: Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, the sculptures and gigantic canvases of Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist and Alex Katz, the silkscreen prints of Andy Warhol, and the paintings of Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein.
All the works in this exhibition come from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, which was founded by the famous sculptor and patron of the arts Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (1875-1942).
Although this exhibition brings together the biggest names in Pop Art, it also includes American artists who are less well known in France (George Segal, Rosalyn Drexler, May Stevens, John Wesley, etc.), and gives visitors the opportunity to appreciate the diversity of techniques used.
