Have you got place for a Lichtenstein?
Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) is one of the most celebrated representatives of Pop Art. The American painter and sculptor found his hallmark form of artistic expression at the start of the 1960s, when he took up the visual language of comic-strip cartoons. Having made his breakthrough in 1961 with the painting Look Mickey, Roy Lichtenstein proceeded to develop his signature style, in which his comic-strip motifs are executed in hand-painted dots that mimic industrial Ben-Day printing processes.
The Art Edition This Must Be the Place is a new edition (2002) issued by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, New York. The original image was created in 1965 to publicize the National Cartoonists Society's 19th annual Reuben Awards dinner. The print is documented as Figure III.20 on page 272 in The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein: A Catalogue Raisonné 1948–1993, by Mary Lee Corlett.
