Roy Lichtenstein Art For Sale

Roy Lichtenstein was an American artist known for his paintings and prints which referenced commercial art and popular culture icons like Mickey Mouse. Composed using Ben-Day dots—the method used by newspapers and comic strips to denote gradients and texture—Roy Lichtenstein’s work mimicked the mechanical technique with his own hand on a much larger scale. Roy Lichtenstein was a leading figure in establishing the Pop Art movement, along with Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist and Jasper Johns. “I take a cliché and try to organize its forms to make it monumental. The difference is often not great, but it is crucial,” Roy Lichtenstein once said of his work.
