Eye of the Beholder
Rogers, Michael
Library Journal, v135 n12 p36-38 Jul 2010
Art, like beauty, as the adage goes, is in the eye of the beholder. Art also is a living, breathing thing that evolves over time, so what is considered "art" is ever changing--how many of the great artists whose works today sell for fortunes were failures during their lifetime? The 20th century unknowingly gave birth to new variations of art that appeared in press photos, comic books, and the covers of pulp magazines and novels. Although the images included in these disposable publications sold for pennies, they have accrued great worth both in terms of monetary value and recognition for their creators. While this fall season brings heaps of glorious new volumes highlighting traditional fine and modern art, there is also a plethora of pop art titles gleaned from comics, movies, and music. This article presents 81 titles that include something for all tastes and budgets, with prices ranging from $125 on the high end down to $19.95.
