American Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein was born in 1923 in New York City. His devotion to the stylised language of advertising and the intricacies of printmaking revolutionised the art scene of the 1960s. Lichtenstein continued to re-envision the means of modern painting and classical art until his passing in 1997. The artist’s enlarged and reframed cartoon icons remain influential to this day.

The elaborate Reflections series was completed in the early 1990s. The sequence is a distinctive example of the artist’s tendency to reconcile contrastive visuals. As opposed to a simple concept of ‘theme and variation’, the Reflections represent innovative ideas of light and perception. The artist previously explored these topics in his Mirrors and Water Lilies of the late 1980s.

In keeping with Lichtenstein’s pop practice, the Reflections combine traditional painterly gestures with the detached manner of commercial imagery. Similar to Paintings of the mid-1980s, the main objective of this series is to challenge the notion of artistic originality.
