Roy Lichtenstein – Pop Art Icon

Roy Lichtenstein was a prominent American pop artist. He became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody.

Favoring the old-fashioned comic strip as subject matter, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style.
