The characteristics and history of pop art in painting

Pop art is an artistic movement that encompasses different techniques and disciplines such as painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, and silkscreen. It originated in England, then developed in the United States and the Western world.

Pop art is closely linked to the capitalist system which it criticizes while drawing inspiration from it. It emerged in the 1950s and developed in the 1960s. Richard Hamilton in England and Andy Warhol in the United States are emblematic figures of this movement.

Silkscreen printing is often used in pop art to denounce the system by reaching a wide audience. The forms, compositions, and subjects of pop art are accessible and appreciated on a global scale.
