Roy Lichtenstein

About this artwork

The American painter, sculptor and printmaker, Roy Lichtenstein, was one of the chief exponents of Pop Art. In his early years he specialised in using comic book and advertising imagery as the basis for his paintings. In the 1980s he began to scale up expressionistically painted sketches which he would then proceed to paint with precisionist detail. It is probably one of these paintings that Lichtenstein is standing in front of in this photograph.
