On this day in 1929, an artist many consider to be a forerunner of the pop art movement was born. Nicholas Krushenick is most commonly associated with the pop art movement, although he is atypical to the genre. Abstract and hard-edge elements can be seen readily in his work, often with titles lacking any apparent association to the imagery of the work. His works are widely collected and can be found in many institutional collections and fine art auctions around the world.
