Roy Lichtenstein brought what was then a great taboo – commercial art – into the gallery, characterized by his hard-edged lines and Ben-Day dots which imitate the mechanical printing process for comic books and advertising. While his method of adapting borrowed imagery from external sources for his work has been described as impersonal, it’s no secret that many of his most prominent paintings are of women made miserable by their affairs with men, presumably influenced by his dissolving marriage in the mid 60s. Is it humour or is it insight?
This is the third of a four-part series of pop art inspired scenes featuring the Pantomime collection by bespoke fashion house, Atelier Grandi.
