The icons of American Pop Art at the Maillol Museum

The icons of American Pop Art at the Maillol Museum

The collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, initiated by the famous sculptor and patron of the arts Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, arrives in Paris.
The Musée Maillol, a typically Parisian museum, offers an exhibition featuring some sixty works of American Pop Art, mostly dating from the early ‘60s to the late ‘70s. The exhibition brings together works by the movement’s formative figures, including Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, but also highlights American artists who are less well-known in France, such as George Segal, Rosalyn Drexler, May Stevens, and John Wesley. From the sculptures and canvases of Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, James Rosenquist and Alex Katz, through the serigraphs of Andy Warhol and the paintings of Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein, Pop Art reaffirmed a belief in the power of the image, while using humour and irony to powerful effect.
