About The Artist:

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) was an American Pop artist born in New York City. His father, a real estate broker and his mother, a homemaker and pianist, frequently took him to museums in his youth. Lichtenstein began college by enrolling in classes at the Arts Students League in New York. He subsequently moved to Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where he finished his studies after serving in World War II. Lichtenstein’s work is a pastiche of cultural appropriation; he famously aped comic book illustrations, enlarging, tracing and painting selected segments, even incorporating the characteristic Ben-Day dots from the offset lithographic printing process into his paintings. Lichtenstein also used the brushstroke, a motif from the Action Paintings of his contemporaries, and created tongue-in-cheek artworks based on 20th century art movements Cubism, Purism, Surrealism, Futurism, and Expressionism. In his later years, Lichtenstein created a series of sculptures of flat-looking but three-dimensional banal objects, and a series of non-reflective mirrors. His playful, balanced work sought to question the assumption that the function of representational art was to reflect reality. His art was an arrangement of forms and colors that obeyed pictorial rules independent of the subject in order to express an ideal state rather than a concrete reality.
