Just Above the Mantelpiece: Mass-Market Masterpieces
Just above the mantelpiece is a big, beautiful book which celebrates the mass-produced art that began to decorate thousands of homes on both sides of the Atlantic from the late 1950s. Once derided by the art world, artists such as Vladimir Tretchikoff, creator of The Green Lady, and Margaret Keane, whose portraits launched the Big Eye movement, are today emerging from anonymity to be reassessed as pop art geniuses. Wayne Hemingway, one of Britain's leading street fashion designers, explains his long-held fascination with the genre in a concise, witty text that runs alongside over 300 gems from his own collection. He sketches the lives of the leading artists and reviews their new-found acclaim in the world of fashion, fine art and photography today. "I think what Keane has done is just terrific. It has to be good. If it were bad, so many people wouldn't like it." -Andy WarholWayne Hemingway, co-founder of Red or Dead, Britain's legendary street-fashion label, hosts his own weekly TV slot Includes tipped-in images to peel off and frame Mass-market art is now highly collectible
