I think I have only painted with Roy Lichtenstien
once before so thought I would try another. I was
surprised to fins a couple of his works that were
similar to Picasso like this crazy lady on the sofa
reflecting in the mirror, just had to paint her twice,
the paintings on the wall, the fish tank and table,
the flowers and the carpet are my impression of
elements from several of his works. This on is
full of detail and brilliant colors! I love to do
reflections, almost like doing a puzzle.
Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City on October 27, 1923
American painter, sculptor, and printmaker, startled the art world in
1962 by exhibiting paintings based on comic book cartoons.
Lichtenstein was best known for his paintings based on comic strips,
with their themes of passion, romance, science fiction, violence, and
war. In these paintings, Lichtenstein uses the commercial art methods:
projectors magnify spray-gun stencils, creating dots to make the
pictures look like newspaper cartoons seen through a magnifying glass.
In the late 1960s he turned to design elements and the commercial art
of the 1930s, as if to explore the history of pop art (a twentieth-century
art movement that uses everyday items). In 1966 his work was included
in the Venice (Italy) Biennale art show. In 1969 New York's
Guggenheim Museum gave a large exhibition of his work.
