POP ART PUZZLE: The Pop Art movement emerged in the 1950s in the wake of World War II’s manufacturing, advertising and media booms. Artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol— many of whom began their careers as commercial artists—favored the trappings of everyday life over the elevated themes common in other art movements. Similar to Dadaism, Pop Art often appropriated everyday objects and imagery to blur the distinctions between high art and pop (or “low”) culture.

HARD EDGE PUZZLE: The Hard-Edge Painting style was popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Although it was identified with Californian artists, today the phrase is used to describe one of the most distinctive tendencies in abstract painting throughout the United States in the 1960s. The style combines the clear composition of geometric abstraction with the intense color and bold, unitary forms of Color Field Painting. Notable artists who adopted the style include Frederick Hammersley, Karl Benjamin, Lorser Feitelson and Frank Stella.
