Filed under: mel ramos — Tags: — jherzlinger @ 8:08 am

Well, back to Pop Art today! I saw a work by Mel Ramos, last week and loved it! So I want to introduce his work to you today! Have a wonderful day!

Love, Jamie

Mel Ramos is a U.S. figurative painter, whose work incorporates elements of realist and abstract art. He gained his greatest popularity in association with the Pop Art movement of the

 

 

1960s.

Mel Ramos received his first important recognition in the early 1960s; since 1959 he has participated in more than 120 group shows. Ramos produced art works that celebrated aspects of pop culture as

represented in mass media. His paintings have been shown in major exhibitions of Pop Art in the U.S. and in Europe and reproduced in books, catalogs, and periodicals throughout the world.

The classification of Ramos within any particular school of art is disputed. Some critical observers of the “art scene” classify Mel Ramos as a pop artist. However, others believe identification of Ramos’ work

within the Pop movement of the 1960s implies a satirical bent which does not reflect the broader context of his paintings, and instead defend his “parodies” as respectful, affectionate tributes, a celebration of images

with personal meaning.
