American painter Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) pioneered a new epoch in American art, bursting onto a scene dominated by Abstract Expressionism in late 1950s New York.
This book provides an essential overview of Lichtenstein’s career, tracing his earliest pop statements to later “brushstroke” retorts to Abstract Expressionism and reinterpretations of modern masterpieces. We look at his leading position in mid-century modernism and the ways in which his works both critique and chronicle 20th-century America.
