This exhibition celebrates the promised gift of an important collection of sculptures, paintings, drawings, and prints, featuring later works by leading figures of the American Pop Art movement: Robert Indiana, Alex Katz, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and others. Also included are works from the museum’s distinguished permanent collection, provided a broad historical overview of Pop art, particularly as it has been practiced the artists represented in this gift, not only in the 1960s, but throughout their careers. The exhibition has been organized to coincide with the publication of Pop Art: Contemporary Perspectives, the first in a new series of Princeton University Art Museum Monographs, in – depth explorations of the museum’s rich collections. The authors, all of whom have recently received their Ph.D. or are current doctoral candidates in the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University, are well positioned to deliver new perspectives on Pop, since they belong to a generation that looks back on both the period and its later revision by early scholars.
