ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) One of the UK's first major exhibitions charting modern and contemporary American pop art opened at the British Museum in London this week, with works from New York's Museum of Modern Art and Washington DC's National Gallery of Art. The exhibition, which showcases some 200 works by 70 artists, looks at American pop art or printmaking over the past six decades, a period when the country's wealth, power and cultural influence had never been greater. The exhibition, which runs until June 18, includes works by pop art legend Andy Warhol and others who shaped the movement, like Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Chuck Close, Louise Bourgeois and Kara Walker.
