The Pop Object

The Pop Object: The Still Life Tradition in Pop Art is an impressive new hardcover title from Rizzoli, by Princeton University arts Professor, accomplished author, and trustee on several gallery boards, John Wilmerding. The hefty 248-page, large format tome is a major survey of pop art from the ’60s through today, and also serves as the catalog for a current exhibition the author curated at New York’s Acquavella Galleries, under the same moniker. Wilmerding categorizes major works in the movement, according to theme and precedent, and of course includes important work by Warhol, Thiebaud, Koons, Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Tom Wesselmann, and many more household names in pop art.
