Exhibition: "Pop Art - Icons That Matter" at Musée Maillol - From 22 September 2017 to 21 January 2018
From September 22, 2017 to January 21, 2018, and for the first time in France, the Musée Maillol hosts in Paris some 60 works from the Pop Art collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
The exhibition, entitled Icons That Matter, brings together 32 leading artists from the American Pop Art movement and presents Pop Art in post-war American art from the early 1960s to the late 1970s.
You can admire the iconic works of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, etc., but also discover some lesser-known American artists such as George Segal, Rosalyn Dexler, May Stevens, John Wesley...
Sculptures, monumental paintings, silkscreen prints... All are pieces of American Pop Art.
Some have never been shown in France, and are exceptionally loaned by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
The Whitney Museum of American Art was founded by renowned sculptor and patron Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney as a tribute to American artists.
Indeed, at the beginning of the 20th century, innovative artists experienced the greatest difficulty in exhibiting and selling their works in the United States.
Today, the collection of the Whitney Museum is rich: more than 22,000 works created by more than 3,000 artists in the 20th and 21st centuries.
