The term pop art has been used so often, that its actual age and date of its first use may not be believed by many. The term Pop Art was originated in London in the mid-1950s. The later 1950s brought the term and movement to the American shores. The actual term Pop Art refers to a departure from fine art by including and merging the fine art qualities of an artist with other media such as advertising product art. Some people have said that Pop Art has as much to do with an attitude of the artist and viewer of the Pop Art as well as the art itself.

The uses of abstract elements by an artist are usually combined with logos and print advertising to form a merged media art piece. Although Andy Warhol’s work in the mid-1960s is thought by many to have heralded in the Pop Art movement in America, it is actually the work of two painters that ushered in the American Pop Art movement. The two American painters that brought about the initial Pop Art movement were Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. Although they were both early leaders of the Pop Art movement, their work was decidedly different from the new wave of Pop Artists and work that was to come about in the 1960s. Starting in the 1960s, the artist who seems to be the most well-known for ushering in the initial Pop Art movement was Roy Lichenstein. He often used the iconic art of comic books as the basis of his art. One of his best known works came from a DC comic- Secret Hearts #83. (His original of the this titled art work Drowning Girl, is located in the Museum of Modern Art) His work featured big bold colors and abstract bold lines in an almost photographic looking final image.

One of the better known Pop Artists of the time was Andy Warhol. His early work of 32 paintings of Campell Soup cans was bought by the gallery owner they were being displayed in for $1,000.00 in 1962. Later on in 1996 MOMA bought the soup collection prints for $15 Million dollars. The Pop Art movement was also occurring in other countries around the globe, although the American movement seems to have become the most popular and well know Pop Art movement.
