Roy Lichtenstein was born 1923 in New York City and was a pioneering figure of American Pop Art. His artistic style was first recognised for mimicking comic strips and advertising images in the 1960s. Although Lichtenstein’s artworks looked industrially made at first glance, his series of paintings and prints were actually achieved manually. The artist’s efforts paved the way for a new generation of artists emerging in the 1980s, who decided to delve deeper into the means of appropriation.

Lichtenstein’s image-making extended in numerous directions over the course of his career. His clean-cut graphics also re-imagined various art historical sources in his own creative voice. He initiated countless dialogues with artistic genres of the past, invigorating the historical iconography through contemporary forms.
