ALLOWAY, Lawrence

‘Pop Art’ since 1949 by Lawrence Alloway as published in The Listener, Vol. LXVIII, No. 1761, Thursday, December 27, 1962.



Lawrence Alloway. Folio. Original paper wrappers. pp. 1085-1087, 2 b/w illusts of works by Richard Hamilton and Derek Boshier, discusses The Independent Group, Richard Hamilton, Eduardo Paolozzi, John McHale, Richard Smith, Peter Phillips, Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Peter Blake, Kitaj etc. ‘Now, however, happy in the playground of the opened-out situation, pop artists lack a grasp of the history their art belongs to, as well as a sense of the internal rigour necessary to art. Instead of contributing to the expanded communications system, which is nineteenth and twentieth-century art, they are coasting along and relaxing. Pop art in England has become game for those who want to tell themselves that they ‘think young’. Paper yellowed and fragile.
