Interior Painting Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein
Painting with The Masters - Art within Art Series
Roy Lichtenstein is very graphic with his work and his colors.
He uses a lot of lines, straight line patterns, dots and solid bold colors.
I find it very interesting that he uses dots on the human figure. I had to
give it a shot and I like the way this turned out.
I have always been a big fan of reflections and use them a lot in my work
especially in my Still Life Series. I like seeing what is on the other side
of a room through a mirror. Lichtenstein painted several interiors using
mirror reflections. It was fun painting what was on the other side of the room

Don’t forget to mention the Paintings Title
Roy Lichtenstein (pronouncedOctober 27, 1923 – September 29, 1997) was a prominent American pop artist. During the 1960s, his paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City and, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist, and others he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody. Favoring the old-fashioned comic strip as subject matter, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a Tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described Pop Art as, "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting".
Lichtenstein Painting, Missing for 42 Years, Surfaces in Warehouse
The Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s black and white “Electric Cord” painting, which disappeared 42 years ago, has turned up in a New York City warehouse, The Associated Press reported.
The painting was reported stolen after it was sent out to be cleaned by its owner, the art dealer Leo Castelli, in 1970 and never returned.
The 1961 painting — which depicts a tightly wound electrical cord and whose value is estimated at $4 million — re-emerged last week when the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation notified Castelli’s widow, Barbara Castelli, that someone was trying to sell it.
