Biography

Roy Lichtenstein (1923 – 1997) was an internationally acclaimed American Pop Artist whose work appropriated images from mass media and advertising in bold, primary colors. His highly intelligent interpretation of comic books and pop culture is expressed through witty, restrained irony and perfectly balanced composition. Lichtenstein questioned categories of high and low art, embracing imagery accessible to everyone and meticulously reproducing the effects of industrial printing techniques by hand. Although his artwork was often met with resistance throughout his career, Lichtenstein is now regarded as one of the defining figures of Pop Art.
