Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the leading figures of the Pop Art movement, best known for his paintings inspired by comic strips. Born in New York in 1923, the artist later enrolled in college at The Ohio State University. While he was still living in Ohio, Lichtenstein started exhibiting in New York, where he moved back in the late 1950s. Although he achieved significant acclaim for his comic works, Lichtenstein continued to experiment throughout his career, producing sculptures, murals, and, later in his career, images of brushstrokes. The artist passed away in 1997, and since then has been the subject of many retrospective exhibitions, including at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate Modern, London, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. Lichtenstein’s work is included in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, among many other institutions.
