Pop art, which emerged in the '50s and rose in popularity throughout the '60s, sought to challenge the idea of fine art. Pop artists would take images and ideas that were a part of culture (such as advertisements and movie stars) and place it in a context. Pop art paintings would often be humorous, and irony was a key element of the style. This list features artists like Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and more!
