Roy Lichtenstein was an artist that rose in popularity in America in the second half of the twentieth century. He initially explored Abstract Expressionism, but from the 1950s onward he found his signature style as he pioneered the Pop Art movement. Lichtenstein rose to prominence in by drawing his inspiration from the visual language of comic books and consumerism. He manifested these mass-produced images into large-scale paintings, defined by his use of bold lines, vibrant primary colours and Benday dots. Through the merging of popular culture with fine art, Lichtenstein redefined the concepts of high art and low art, changing the course of art history forever.

Join us as we explore the evolution of Lichtenstein’s artistic vision and delve into the vibrant world of his early prints.
