Aside from Arman and Yves Klein, American viewers are generally unfamiliar with the artists associated with Nouveau Réalisme, France's analog to 1960s Pop Art, though this survey should redress the problem for at least one member. Martial Raysse's work was arguably the most Pop-like of the whole group, often depicting glamorous women, much as Warhol did. In typical Gallic fashion, however, Raysse eschewed Warhol's celebration of Hollywood for a tone that was darker and more redolent of existential dread.
