This catalogue offers a representative sample of the work of several pop artists: from America Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Alex Katz, from England David Hockney, Allen Jones and Richard Hamilton and from Germany Fritz Köthe.
The focus of both the exhibition (Stiftung Schleswig-Holsteinische Landesmuseen, Schloss Gottorf, 6 May – 21 October 2012) and this accompanying catalogue is on paintings, works on paper and multiples by Wesselmann and Köthe. In addition, portfolios such as Hockney’s The Blue Guitar and June Ekman’s Class by Katz are presented in their entirety.
The catalogue opens with an introduction by Thomas Gädeke and an essay by Margret Schütte. It contains 152 colour plates on 188 pages and closes with a short biography and a list of selected solo exhibitions of each artist.
