Roy Lichtenstein helped pioneer the Pop Art movement in America. His paintings, inspired by comic strips, are considered to be some of the best examples of Pop Art of the 1960’s. In this session, we will explore Lichtenstein’s comic strip works, but also his years studying and teaching at the Ohio State University, the uneasy relationship he had with critics, and his later works including the Brushstrokes series and his work that was inspired by masterpieces painted by by Van Gogh, Cezanne and others.
