Announcing the new Princeton University Art Museum Monograph Series:
Princeton University Art Museum Monographs is a new series of in-depth explorations of the museum's rich collections. Beautifully designed and produced, these books by leading and emerging scholars offer new insights and perspectives on a single work or group of works from Princeton's distinguished permanent collection.
Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Indiana, and Alex Katz have all come to define the Pop art movement that emerged in America in the 1960s. This handsomely illustrated book focuses on 40 understudied and rarely seen late paintings, works on paper, and sculptures by these influential artists in the collection of the Princeton University Art Museum.
Pop Art offers fresh insights into the ways in which artists radically transformed the mediums of painting and sculpture. For example, Lichtenstein is repositioned as a classical studio artist”; Wesselmann is shown to be playfully preoccupied with academic genres; and Indiana is interpreted less as a Pop artist than as a folk artist in a mass-cultural context. This important book also features an engaging introduction by Hal Foster that places these new interpretations in the context of the history of Pop art and its critical literature.

About the Author:

John Wilmerding is Christopher Binyon Sarofim ’86 Professor of American Art in the Department of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University. Hal Foster is Townsend Martin 17 Professor of Art and Archaeology and chairman of the department at Princeton. Johanna Burton, Kevin Hatch, Suzanne Hudson, Alex Kitnick, Julia Robinson, and Diana Tuite have recently received their Ph.D. or are current doctoral candidates in the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University.

From Publishers Weekly:

This fine collection of critical essays on six artists of the Pop art movement kicks off the Princeton University Art Museum Monographs, a series of volumes aimed at scholars and more general readers interested in "delving more deeply into the complex narrative of art history." The six essays here cover Robert Indiana, Alex Katz, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann, a diverse array of artists with a wide variety of methods and results. Although the essays are as diverse as the subjects they treat, they all take as their starting point the reevaluation of received art-historical perspectives. On the whole, the young essayists shed new light on both Pop art in general and these six practitioners in particular. There's enough critical meat here to satisfy specialists in the field, a mixed blessing that can undermine its broader appeal; many arguments hinge on an above-average familiarity with larger trends in 20th century art and art criticism. Those looking for a basic introduction to Pop art should likely begin elsewhere, but anyone-specialist or otherwise-interested in an accessible critical engagement with the movement will find rich rewards here.
