Serge Gainsbourg considered popular music as a minor art compared to painting and sculpture. While record covers are true products of the pop culture, they sometimes borrowed to the fine arts. Numerous examples of sleeves are obvious imitations or reproductions of famous works of art, denoting either a genuine devotion or a deliberate attempt to gain artistic credit (or both). In return, some contemporary figures in the visual arts fairly understood the benefit in contributing, directly or not, to popular music, and thus reaching a much larger audience. How many rock fans discovered Andy Warhol with the famous Velvet Underground banana ? This website is about record covers and arts.
