Roy Lichtenstein was a prominent American artist and leading figure in the Pop Art movement, together with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist and others. Most famous for his iconic works inspired by old-fashioned comic strips, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while they parodied, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner. His work was heavily influenced by popular advertising and culture.
