LARRY RIVERS (1923-2002)

 
Larry Rivers is considered by many to be the father of the Pop Art movement.

Larry Rivers wird von vielen als der Vater der Pop-Art-Bewegung angesehen. In Rivers' Werk "Beyond Camel" von 1980 sehen wir eine leicht unscharfe Camel-Zigarettenschachtel, einen Gegenstand aus der Konsumkultur, den sich Rivers angeeignet hat, um eine Kritik an der Kommerzialisierung und Konsumkultur zu schaffen. Rivers kannte sicherlich das Werk von Stuart Davis und sein Gemälde "Lucky Strike" von 1921, das eine abgeflachte Zigarettenschachtel zeigt. Rivers interpretiert sein Sujet mit einer Pop-Art-Perspektive; allerdings ist die Bildsprache fast überlebensgroß, und das Markenimage wird als eigenständiges Subjekt präsentiert.

Im Jahr 2002 fand in der Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., eine Retrospektive von Rivers' Werk statt.
