pop artist roy lichtenstein 1923 1997
  • Considered pop art ‘industrial’ painting
  • Influenced by media and popular advertising
  • Mixed text and image
  • Art known for having an unmistakably ‘American’ quality
  • Printmaker, painter
from a 1964 article in life magazine
From a 1964 article in LIFE Magazine…
  • A critic of the New York Times, hedging only a bit, pronounced Roy Lichtenstein "one of the worst artists in America."
  • Others insist that he is no artist at all, that his paintings of blown-up comic strips, cheap ads and reproductions are tedious copies of the banal.
  • But an equally emphatic group of critics, museum officials and collectors find Lichtenstein's pop art "fascinating"," forceful", "starkly beautiful".
  • Provocative though they are, Lichtenstein's paintings have done more than stir up controversy. They have done something significant to art.

From a 1966 Interview by BBC Third Programme with David Sylvester…
  • David Sylvester: What do you think of as the main sources of your language?
  • Roy Lichtenstein: Well, I think in some ways, really, Cubism, but of course cartooning itself and commercial art are obviously an influence. But I think the aesthetic influence on me is probably more Cubism than anything. I think even the cartoons themselves are influenced by Cubism, because the hard-edged character which is brought about by the printing creates a kind of cubist look which perhaps wasn't intended.
