Roy Lichtenstein Roy Lichtenstein - Biography

The New Yorker Roy Lichtenstein, next to Andy Warhol the second luminary of Pop Art, occupies a first rank among the most famous artists of the 20th century. It is particularly his giant comic strips that have become icons of western art.
The special appeal of Roy Lichtenstein's art, which finds expression in painting, sculpting, design and graphic art, is in the ironic monumentalization of trivial subjects, and, which stresses it even more, in the almost classicist aestheticisation by means of simplified forms, an exaggerated coloring and the use of imitated halftone dots. By means of this concept and the absence of context, Roy Lichtenstein's comic images became fundamental prototypes of great "issues of mankind". Besides comic strips, Roy Lichtenstein also worked with other models, for instance with distinguished paintings or architectural objects.
The oeuvre of Roy Lichtenstein, which has been honored in innumerable exhibitions, is on display in the world's most important museums.
