In the early 1950s, a jolt went through the cultural scene. Young artists from the US and England - completely independently of each other - severed their ties with all the traditions of artistic creativity and helped the modernity to achieve a new art movement.

In the US there were Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann and James Rosenquist who were seeking their themes in the world of advertising and comics, in star cult and anonymous urban culture. With flash coloring, overdimensioning and manipulating depth perspective they created new provocative works that breathed the spirit of the time. Richard Hamilton and Eduardo Paolozzi are to be considered as the true pioneers of Pop Art in England thanks to the famous exhibition "This is Tomorrow" at London's Whitechapel Art Gallery. In the 1960s, they were followed by David Hockney, Allan Jones, Peter Phillips and Derek Boshier.
