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.

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.
