Made in USA. An Americanization in Modern Art, the ‘50s & ‘60s

Stich contends that “setting forth an original American iconography and asserting innovative attitudes toward image presentation” were the major accomplishments of American artists of the 1950s and 60s. She points to artists’ images of American icons, food, cities, media, and “the American dream.” Made in U.S.A. focuses on Pop Art, its precursors and fellow travelers. In dealing with this aggregation of artists Stich presents clear, insightful commentary, but avoids critical evaluation. She should be commended for the inclusion of less well known female and male artists, along with the superstars. Her book provides a valuable survey of American art and culture.
