Artist/Maker: Roy Lichtenstein
Classification: Prints

Roy Lichtenstein developed his signature Pop art style by merging high-art formalism with material culture.

These works varied from abstract to figurative as he continued to develop his own visual vocabulary, for which he quickly became famous.
