Born in New York, Roy Lichtenstein (1923 - 1997) is one of America’s foremost Pop artists. He studied at the Art Students League 1939 and at the Ohio State College 1940-43. Throughout his career Lichtenstein mined antecedent imagery, taking inspiration from a diverse array of sources including comic strips, advertising slogans, classical architecture and the art of European Modernists. His work has been exhibited extensively worldwide. Retrospective exhibitions have recently been held at Kunsthaus Bregenz (2005), Museo Triennale, Milan (2010), and Art Institute of Chicago (2012). Current exhibitions include ‘SYNTHESIS 3D: Artist Multiples’ at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and ‘Signs & Symbols’ at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
