Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is remembered as one of the 20th century's greatest and most influential artists. An excellent painter and sculptor, Lichtenstein was a pioneer whose unique visual language became the transitional voice between the modern and post-modern art movements of the late 20th century.

In the 1960s, Lichtenstein began to use objects and images from mass culture and advertising. His blowups of original cartoons were reproduced by hand and brought him unparalleled attention. His art consisted of black outlines, stripes, dots, brushstrokes, flat fields, foils, and patterns such as canvas weave and wood grain. The idea of appropriating imagery from popular culture transformed Lichtenstein into a leader of the New York City based Pop art movement.
