Roy Lichtenstein

Age: 73

A major figure in American art, Lichtenstein drew attention to Pop painting in the 1960s with his distinctive renderings of comic books and advertisements. Unlike abstract expressionists, Lichtenstein relished mimicking familiar images in popular culture. Using bold colors, prominent black outlines and patterns of Ben Day dots, he managed to create whimsical works of art that were uniquely his own.
