Lichtenstein, Roy:Roy Lichtenstein is an American pop artist who shared prominence with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and other notable artists of the late 1960s. His paintings use tongue-and-cheek humor and a distinctive comic-book inspired style to bring attention to social issues. Born in New York City, Lichtenstein began taking art classes as a senior in high school. He pursued a degree in fine arts at Ohio State University, which was interrupted when he spent time in the army during World War II. After returning and finishing both bachelor's and master's degrees, he traveled between New York and Cleveland while showing his paintings, which experimented with abstraction, cubism, and expressionism. In 1961, Lichtenstein began exploring the style that would make him famous. By borrowing themes and images from commercial printing and comic books, specifically imagery that focused on the role of women in society, he began producing meaningful work that also appealed to the masses. Using oil and acrylic paint, Lichtenstein made his work look more like photographic reproductions than fine art. His most famous image, Wham!!!, is borrowed from the pages of a DC Comics selection and serves as a commentary on the military-industrial complex. Another famous work, Drowning Girl, also derives from a comic and features a girl who is unwilling to call her boyfriend for help as she sinks under the waves. Lichtenstein received many awards for his innovative work, including a National Medal of the Arts in 1995. He passed away in 1997; his collections currently are shared between five museums: Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the National Gallery of Art in Washington; the Centre Pompidou in Paris; and the Tate in London.
