Roy Lichtenstein Exhibit at The Art Institute of Chicago
Roy Lichtenstein’s works are probably some of the most recognizable, iconic American art. The influences of advertising and comic books in his work define him as a pop artist.
Lichtenstein first started painting pop art in 1961 using cartoon images and techniques derived from the appearance of commercial printing. He continued to paint this way until 1965. The topics ranged from consumerism and homemaking to Mickey Mouse and he worked with materials like oil and magna paint as well as Ben-day dots.
The exhibit opens at The Art Institute of Chicago on Wednesday, May 16 and runs through September 3, 2012.
