Roy Lichtenstein



Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City. As a child, Lichtenstein spent time listening to science fiction radio programs, visiting the American Museum of Natural History, building model airplanes, and drawing. At age fourteen he began attending a painting class at Parson's School of Design every Saturday morning. For four years beginning in 1940 he studied in New York at the Art Students' League. He served in the US Army in Europe during WWII. 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. Catalog Ref: Prestel no. 38.
