Tate Papers no.24 Autumn 2015

This issue explores two distinct themes: the internationalism of pop art in the 1960s and 1970s and the writings of the nineteenth-century critic William Hazlitt. Works by pop artists from Argentina, Brazil, France and Yugoslavia are examined in relation to local and global contexts, while Hazlitt’s aesthetic theories, rhetorical devices and literary influences are analysed through close readings of individual texts. Complementing the papers on pop art is an article investigating the wax effigies created by American artists Paul Thek and Lynn Hershman Leeson.
