LES ANNÉES POP 1956-1968.

Paris: Centre Pompidou, 2001. Published to accompany the exhibition held at Centre Pompidou, Galerie 1, between March 15th and June 18th, 2001. Sq. 4to. Silver illustrated boards. 440pp. Copiously illustrated throughout in colour and b/w. Foreword by Mark Francis. Texts in French. Fine.

A chronologically organised cultural smörgåsbord of work from the United States, Britain, France and elsewhere, intended by its curator, Catherine Grenier, to demonstrate that Pop Art was part of a larger international phenomenon that included architecture, design, movies and music. It begins with the Whitechapel Art Gallery exhibition 'This Is Tomorrow' and Richard Hamilton's collage, "Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing", considered the inaugural work of Pop Art, and ends with "Swingeing London", Hamilton's response to the Establishment's attempts to repress the personal, sexual and political freedoms gained in the intervening years.
