Exhibition Label

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.
