Roy Lichtenstein’s iconic Pistol of 1964 presents a cartoon commentary on the lack of gun control in America. The work showcases a figurative illustration of a pistol rendered in the artist’s signature primary colours and bold outlines. This felt banner was executed as part of a limited edition of 20.
The late 1960s were transformative and violent years in American history. The assassination of both Martin Luther King Jr. and presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy unleashed a heated debate on weapons possession. Roy Lichtenstein’s Pistol was initially commissioned by TIME.
