Critical Review

The artist uses bright colours, bold black outlines, and a few Ben Day dots to accent his otherwise linear composition. Lichtenstein adds authentic decorative details to the room, as well as his referential versions of the actual paintings that once hung there. For instance, a cartoon rendition of the American flag is mounted on a wall on the right, alluding to the artist’s ownForms In Space from 1985.

Akin to Inaugural Print and I Love Liberty, the work harnesses the cultural saturation of popular imagery. Embracing a polished and mass-produced aesthetic, Lichtenstein’s take on this notorious room stylises and modernises the space. The artist’s highly illustrative and colourful representation of the presidential office is a classic example of his captivating Pop Art.
