'Pop chose to depict everything previously considered unworthy of notice, let alone of art: every level of advertisment, magazine and newspaper illustration, Times Squere jokes, tasteless bric-à-brac and gaudy furnishing, ordinary clothes and foods, film stars, pin-ups, cartoons. Nothing was sacred, and the cheaper and more despicable the better. Nor were the time-honoured mehods of creating art respected...'
