Roy Lichtenstein: Pop Remix traces the artist's printprojects from the 1950s to the 1990s, exploring how he appropriated,transformed, and remixed numerous art historical sources includingClaude Monet's Impressionism, Max Ernst's Surrealism, andWillem de Kooning's Abstract Expressionism. Lichtensteinreinterpreted the work of these artistic giants and significant artmovements using an instantly recognizable graphic aesthetic,effectively branding his art with a signature Lichtenstein look tosecure his place alongside those masters he so admired. Slick,intelligent, and humorous, Lichtenstein's remixes of romance andwar comics, brushstrokes and nude girls are among the best-known Popprints.
