Summary

Summary

Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter are among the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century. Each appropriated everyday imagery as source material, each co-opted photography and the technologies of mechanical reproduction to the ends of high art, and each dissected the status of the artwork in the age of mass media. Secure in their individual understandings of the Zeitgeist, they found unique new lives for painting, a medium repeatedly pronounced dead. Originally brought together in the book In the Power of Painting: Warhol, Polke, Richter, Twombly, Marden, Bleckner, a volume which addressed the status of painting today, this new volume more saliently examines the sensibilities that have shaped the work of Warhol, Polke, and Richter. With lavish reproductions accompanied by essays that outline their common concerns and their relationship to Pop Art, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the aftermath of Pop and artwork in the age of massmedia.
