Fashion prints that employ umbrella art are highly popular within this art category. These works have much in common with pop art paintings and often employ umbrellas as an accessory or tool to highlight the overall effect of the work.
Pop art paintings also employ umbrellas, although these works are usually more whimsical than their fashionable counterparts. This is largely because pop art paintings featuring umbrellas have works that are suitable for both children and adults. Thematic prints like 'Elephant and Owl With Umbrella' by Nancy Lee is an example of a pop art painting meant for children while parasol images such as 'My Complex Heart' Lorraine Christie is more in line with modern umbrella art for older audiences.
