More Information

Morley and other Pop artists were fascinated by the commercialism of postwar America. In this work, the artist pokes fun at the corniness of travel brochure photography as well as the stereotypical image of the All-American family that those publications promote. Morley heightened the commercial feel of his image by allowing areas of color to print slightly out of register, like an inexpensive postcard reproduction.
