Price: $17,000 USD

Roy Lichtenstein is preeminently identified with Pop Art, the movement he helped originate, and his first fully achieved paintings were based on imagery lifted from comic strips and advertisements and rendered in a style mimicking the crude printing processes of newspaper reproduction. Along with fellow artists Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, and Jasper Johns, Lichtenstein used popular culture as a basis for art in the late 1950s and marked a move away from Abstract Expressionism.However he started as a Cubist Artist by late 1950s. It was his son that drove him towards Pop Art through a challenge of pointing out to a Mickey Mouse comic book saying, “I bet you can’t paint as good as that, eh, Dad?” Which resulted in his 1961 painting "Look Mickey" and is regarded as the bridge between his Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art works. 

Born Roy Fox Lichtenstein on October 27, 1923 in New York, NY, he began his career at the Art Students League of New York after graduating from high school. While working as a professor at Rutgers University, he met Allan Kaprow who inspired him to revisit pop imagery in his practice. Lichtenstein returned to New York where he continued to live and work until his death on September 29, 1997.
