Each auction at Los Angeles Modern Auctions has its knockout pieces, but Pop artworks in particular have a tendency to regularly stand out with their electrifying color palettes and playful imagery sourced from popular culture.

We are excited to offer an outstanding selection of iconic works in this auction by a group of important New York artists that, quite literally, pop out among the others. Pop art never seems to go out of style, retaining its freshness and novelty to this day. This auction boasts a number of important works by American Pop artists, including art world favorites Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, and Ellsworth Kelly, all of whom deployed highly impersonal iconographies taken from popular culture, including comics, advertisements, magazines, billboards, television, and political propaganda to express deeply personal themes.
