20th century art, modern art, 1960s

The most important art movement in the 1960s was Pop Art, and its most important exponent Andy Warhol, whose brash commercial imagery became a Fine Art staple. Warhol also minimised the role of the artist, often employing assistants to make his work and using mechanical means of production, such as silkscreen printing. This marked a change from Modernism to Post-Modernism.
