About Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1977) was a leading figure in the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. After a three-year stint in the army, Lichtenstein obtained his MFA from Ohio State University in 1949. 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 highly stylized, comic book-like drawing, bright colors, and precise compositions.
