Roy Lichtenstein

Pop Remix

National Gallery of Australia, UWP – National Gallery of Australia
Roy Lichtenstein: Pop Remix traces the artist's print projects from the 1950s to the 1990s, exploring how he appropriated, transformed, and remixed numerous art historical sources including Claude Monet's Impressionism, Max Ernst's Surrealism, and Willem de Kooning's Abstract Expressionism. Lichtenstein reinterpreted the work of these artistic giants and significant art movements using an instantly recognizable graphic aesthetic, effectively branding his art with a signature Lichtenstein look to secure his place alongside those masters he so admired. Slick, intelligent, and humorous, Lichtenstein's remixes of romance and war comics, brushstrokes and nude girls are among the best-known Pop prints.
