Roy Lichtenstein

One of the most radical and influential artists of the 20th century, known for his iconic pop prints inspired by comic strips.

Roy Lichtenstein

Critics would often complain of the lack of 'artistic' skill in Lichtenstein's work, unimpressed by his use of commercial subject matter and the crudeness of his painting techniques. Yet his Pop art prints would go on to become some of the most iconic of his generation.

Lichtenstein wanted to celebrate the things 'that are usable, forceful, and vital about commercial art'. He restricted his paint colours to imitate the four colours of printers' inks and devised his own dot screen method.

A selection of his works go on display in Liverpool, drawn from the Artist Rooms collection.
