Whiz! Bang! Pop! Blam! Roy Lichtenstein has rendered everything from a comic-book cell and a warplane to a country landscape and a turkey in his trademark style drawn from printed advertisements and cartoons. A master mixer of popular culture and high art, Lichtenstein's painterly use of Benday dots and heavy outlines turned oil paintings into something they had never before come close to. This catalogue chronicles the evolution of his brushstroke and painterly style from the late 50s through the 90s, complete with photographs of the artist at work, and reproductions of paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Critic and scholar Dave Hickey's highly original and compelling personal essay challenges the way we traditionally think about Lichtenstein's art.
