15 June - 4 October 2010. Although Pop Art is predominantly associated with the United States where its name is synonymous with artists such as Andy Warhol, the movement actually has its roots in 1950s London. The development of Pop Art in North America and Britain was markedly different.

The British artists hailed from a more academic background and made use of subtle parody and a rather dry wit, while the artwork of the American artists tended to focus on power and mass consumerism. This exhibition at the Reina Sofia museum presents a wide array of Pop Art paintings from the period 1957 to 1962.

Mon-Sat: 10.00-21.00. Sun: 10.00-14.00. Closed Tuesdays.
