Pop Art Prints
born New York City 1923–died New York City 1997
Reverie, from the portfolio 11 Pop Artists, Volume II
Gift of Philip Morris Incorporated
© Estate of Roy Lichtenstein
Like other pop artists, Roy Lichtenstein hoped to eliminate the distinction between "high" and "low" art. He drew inspiration from cartoons and advertisements, adopted the look of mechanical processes, and often borrowed images directly from comic strips. In Reverie's single frame, black outlines define fields of dots that mimic commercial half-tone printing, making a punchy and accessible image of a lovelorn songstress.
