Following the continuity in rising demand for Pop Art works and recent price records at auction, the movement is increasingly present on the international exhibition agenda. The World Goes Pop at the Tate and International Pop, currently at the Philadelphia Museum of Art both retrace the story of Pop Art worldwide. The exhibition Pop, Pin-Ups and Politics at Whitford Fine Art revisits the original story of the British Pop Artists. Born in Britain in the early 50's years in reaction to the Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art is the result of a shared vision of a diversified group of British artists, whose common denominator lies in the use of popular culture and advertising for inspiration. This exhibition features the real heroes of the Pop Art movement: Clive Barker, Peter Blake, Derek Boshier, Pauline Boty, Patrick Caulfield, Antony Donaldson, Allen Jones, Gerald Laing, Peter Phillips and Colin Self.

Thus, Whitford Fine Art, "one of the 10 galleries to go to buy art", according to the February issue of The London Magazine, presents one of the most varied and original retrospectives in terms of British Pop Art in the capital.

Originally aimed at the young, the witty, sexy and glamorous side of Pop Art continues to fascinate. An event not to be missed!
