Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most influential American artists to emerge in the post-war period. ARTIST ROOMS currently holds a collection of late screenprints by Lichtenstein on long-term loan from the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, while the painting Reflections: ART (1988) is lent by a private collection, courtesy of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, 2015. This ARTIST ROOMS collection of works by Roy Lichtenstein has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.

In addition to the works on loan to the ARTIST ROOMS collection, Lichtenstein is a significant artist in both National Galleries of Scotland’s and Tate’s collections. National Galleries of Scotland holds the important early comic book painting, In the Car 1963 along with two prints, and an example of wallpaper produced by the artist in 1968. Tate holds 35 works by Lichtenstein including the iconic Whaam! 1963, Wall Explosion II 1965 and Interior with Waterlilies 1991.
