In the 60's Lichtenstein played a critical role in subverting the skeptical view of commercial styles and subjects established by the Abstract Expressionists. By embracing more common forms of art such as comic books and popular illustration, Lichtenstein became a significant force in the Pop art movement. His paintings and gargantuan prints of cartoons and comics are his most recognizable work. Lichtenstein used Abruzzo's 60s, "Run for Love" illustration as the basis for the painting and offset lithograph he titled, "Drowning Girl". This is one of Lichtenstein's most recognizable and celebrated images. Metropolitan Museum.
