Those, like myself, who marvel at the record prices for the last available classic (if secondary) works by Andy Warhol, must consider that the time between their creation and now is the equivalent of the time span between the Civil War and World War I, a length in which two full generations have come and gone. The pressure of what we continue to call contemporary art collapses this period in our minds into a kind of eternal present:  a big part of the market and esthetic appeal of Pop.
