I recently visited "Artists Monographs" at Artnet online and came across an unlikely looking pair, McDermott and McGough by name; then when I visited their biographical page, I was immediately hooked by something McDermott says there: "I've seen the future, and I'm not going."
And, the photograph of the two artists on the same biographical page further heightened my interest:
The following selection of six from Artnet's collection of the artists' works, showing subjects from 1955, transported me back to that year, when I was thirteen going on fourteen and sincerely believed I was very well-informed because I read Life magazine each week.
All the pictures are courtesy of Artnet Magazine online and the two artists, and regarding Artnet, at its "Monographs" home there is this: "...Artnet offers these catalogues free to the public as an educational resource. Simply click on an individual artist's image to begin, and check back often to browse new catalogues ."
Enjoy 1955, especially if during that year you were still morphing from adolescence into teen-ager-hood:
