Roy Lichtenstein was an American pop artist best known for his bold, graphic style of painting. Born in New York City in 1923, Lichtenstein began his career as a commercial artist before moving on to explore more personal themes in his work. In the 1960s, he began to experiment with Appropriation Art, incorporating images from popular culture into his paintings. This signature style made him one of the most prominent artists of the 1960s Pop Art movement. Lichtenstein's work often satirized American culture, critiquing the idealized visions of domestic life and consumerism that were prevalent at the time. He achieved mainstream success in the 1970s, and his work can now be found in museums all over the world. Lichtenstein died in 1997, but his legacy as one of America's most significant pop artists continues to thrive.
