Pop Art, a movement of the 1950s to the 1970s primarily based in Britain and the United States, used imagery from popular culture such as mass media, commercial design and advertising

Minimalism, which originated in the US from the 1960s onwards, was partly a reaction against the flamboyance of Pop Art and is simple, non-representational and ordered. Working mostly in sculpture, minimalist artists used modern materials to make geometric objects seeking to make work that was exactly what it was and nothing more; with minimalist art, what you see is what you get.

Featured artists:

  • David Hockney
  • Andy Warhol
  • Duane Hanson
  • Roy Lichtenstein
  • Richard Hamilton
  • Arman (Armand Fernandez)
  • Donald Judd
