The Artist

Roy Lichtenstein

American artist Roy Lichtenstein is renowned for his comic book inspired paintings. Alongside his peers Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns, he was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement. Originating from a mix of Cubism, Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism, the course of Lichtenstein’s work changed, when his young son challenged him to ‘’paint as good’’ as the pictures in a Mickey Mouse comic book. This influenced his 1961 piece, ‘’Look Mickey’’, which was admired by adults and children alike. Lichtenstein became recognised for his hand painted large pictures, which resembled comic books in their employment of hard edges, flat bright colours and shading through dots.
