As director of Los Angeles's Ferus Gallery from 1957 to 1966, Irving Blum was one of the most influential art dealers of his time, giving Pop art its start by showing the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein at the outset of their careers. At this special event, Blum recounts personal anecdotes, inside observations, and behind-the-scenes details about Lichtenstein and the 1960s art scene.
