A reproduction of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein's painting entitled 'As I Opened Fire' (1964), this print is inspired by Jerry Grandenetti's panels for DC Comics' All American Men of War, No. 90 (1962). Featuring a short few seconds during an aircraft battle, Lichtenstein altered the original narrative to improve its formal coherence. Despite the varying skies, the cinematic flow is seen through the successive tighter views of the gun nozzles in action, accompanied by an onomatopoeia. This piece is from one of several editions of more than 3,000 printed after 1966, published by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.

Roy Lichtenstein (American, b. 1923) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement of the 1960s. Following a three-year stint in the army, Lichtenstein completed his degree at Ohio State University. While there, he met Hoyt L. Sherman, his professor and mentor who has been credited with influencing Lichtenstein’s future work. Shifting between cubism and expressionism, Lichtenstein’s oeuvre is characteristically marked by a highly stylized, comic book-like drawing, bright colors and very precise, graphic, compositions. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Ohio State University in 1949.
