Drawing from the V&A's outstanding collection of Pop Art graphics, this is the V&A's first exhibition of Pop Art prints. Bringing together over seventy works, this exhibition offers a comprehensive and exciting view of artist working in this style from the late 1950s to the early 2000s. Inspired by commercial graphics and popular culture, the movement generated an innovative and prolific culture of printmaking.
The work of over 30 artists are features in the exhibition; amongst the most iconic are Andy Warhol, Allen Jones Robert Indiana, Roy Litchenstein, Patrick Caufield, David Hockney, Richard Hamilton, Gavin Turk and Julian Opie.
