"Everybody has called Pop Art 'American' painting, but it's actually industrial painting. America was hit by industrialism and capitalism harder and sooner and it's values see more askew..." - Roy Lichtenstein

 

Between 1950 and the mid 1960's, a number of American Artists found themselves influenced by the imagery and motifs of comic strips. In 1958, Lichtenstein produced drawings of comic strip characters. He portrayed artificiality in his images by painting them as if they had come from a commercial press, with flat, single-color benday dots like that of the newspaper. By hand, and with much precision, he rendered his works of art using paint and stencils.

Later in his career, Roy Lichtenstein extended his source material to art history, including the work of Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso. He has influenced artists such as Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, and Raymond Pettibon.
