Not just a dry discussion of the major works, this video is an exploration of the environment that produced the artist and influenced his or her work. From interviews with family and friends, to short trips to the artist's favorite haunts, no stone is left unturned. In this particular episode, viewers explore the life and work of Roy Lichtenstein, one of the prominent figures of the pop movement. Focusing on his 1993 career retrospective at the Guggenheim, this video explores the work of the man who so effectively combined four-color comic-book art with the sensibility of Seurat. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Roy Lichtenstein

A fascinating documentary on the work of pop art legend Roy Lichtenstein that intelligently analyzes his work and features the artist himself showing his methods of choosing and composing his comic book style paintings. I thought it was interesting in particular when a cartoonist whose artwork Lichtenstein reappropriated spoke about whether or not the latter was in the wrong for profiting from the sales of his works. Recommended for any art fan.
