Andy Warhol: an American artist who was a leader in the visual art movement: pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, and advertising that grew in the 1960s, and span a variety of media, such as painting, silkscreening, photography, film, and sculpture.
Elliot Erwitt: is an American advertising and documentary photographer. He is best known for his black and white candid shots of ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings, some which are included in our dataset.
Ralph Gibson: American art photographer best known for his photographic books. His images often incorporate fragments with erotic and mysterious undertones, building narrative meaning through contextualization and surreal juxtaposition.
Emilio Sanchez: Cuban-born American artist known for his architectural paintings and graphic lithographs. A representational artist with a modernist and sometimes abstract approach, Sanchez emphasized pattern, color and strong lighting contrasts. By 1970 architectural themes, from detailed stained glass windows to abstracted storefronts or city skylines, dominated his oeuvre.
