About the artist

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is one of America’s most influential Pop artists. His use of appropriated images blurred the lines between high- and low-brow art and brought American pop culture from the mainstream into museum and gallery spaces. While Lichtenstein’s earlier work referred to American history and imagery, his style drastically changed in the 1960s when he began mining material from advertising and comic books, soon making him a powerhouse in the Pop art movement alongside the likes of Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. 

Lichtenstein is known not only for the subject matter depicted but also for his engagement with the materials and techniques he used. Using benday dots and hashes, paint, and stencils, he created paintings that looked like they had come off of a commercial press. This collision of printing and painting furthered Lichtenstein’s ability to innovate the art forms he was engaging with. 

A foundational figure in postwar American art, Lichtenstein had begun showing with Leo Castelli Gallery by the early 1960s, making breakthroughs in his work using ironic and satirical elements to make statements on the culture and world around him. He continues to be a mainstay in the art world for the thoughtful and intricate oeuvre put out, with his work continually shown in institutions around the world.
