384 Words2 Pages
From this week’s reading, I am most interested in Marilyn Diptych from Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol was a artistic giant who dominated pop art from the 1960s, and Marilyn Diptych was obviously a piece of pop art. In contrast to past traditional art at that time, pop art took it style and subject matter from popular culture such as from comic books, advertisements, movies, and television. Accordingly, some referred pop art as low culture in modern art because they saw popular culture as cheap and uneducated taste, so pop art was not sophisticated enough as past traditional art. However, Warhol argued past art demanded thought and understanding which would quickly become uninteresting and boring, and he suggested that art should be like movie stars.
