Is it possible for an artist to make a painting that is not informed by his own life? The Pop artists were initially both reviled and celebrated for refusing to make art about their "feelings."

Pop Art was initially described as ironic, impersonal, emotionally cool ─ pick your favorite synonym for "refrigerated."

The Pop artists were prophetic because they saw a new kind of America coming, a country where you are what you buy.
