Both pop art and abstract expressionism may seem like vague concepts to students until they see this in-depth video that describes and displays them. This 60-minute video discusses the roots of abstract expressionism and the way that it was rejected as the pop art movement began in the 60s. This video explores several prominent works in each of these styles and shows students how the concepts were put to use in the actual works themselves. Works such as Mountains and Sea, by Helen Frankenthaler, are examined to teach students about the styles themselves as well as to introduce them to prominent paintings. This video is available only in the U.S. and Canada. View a preview clip.
