Summary

Summary

From Blast to Pop: Aspects of Modern British Art, 1915-1965 charts the complex trajectory of modernism in Britain, from the 1914 Vorticist manifesto published in the short-lived journal Blast to the emergence of British Pop art in the late 1950s and early 1960s. This catalog of an exhibition shown at the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago, includes entries by Richard A. Born on 100 paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures; an essay by Keith Hartley of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; and a bibliography, as well as 13 color and 101 black-and-white illustrations.
