Description

'Still Life with Windmill' by Roy Lichtenstein is a 20th Century interpretation of the cherished still life tradition from the Dutch Golden Age. Much like Lichtenstein's use of the Benday Dot technique seen throughout many of his works, the artist fills sections of the work with lineal patterns to create a greater sense of depth and space. Fresh lemons rest beside a white vase, while an open window looks outside to a lush rural landscape.

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.
