Roy Lichtenstein Paintings

Roy Lichtenstein paintings are great examples of modern art from the 20th century and Roy Lichtenstein is amongst the finest American artists of all time, producing a cartoon-style approach that helps his work to stand out from all others. This website covers all of the artist's most famous paintings and also discusses in detail both his life and career. There is a fuller list below that covers most of Lichenstein's best paintings.

Roy Lichtenstein famously created a pop art style in his art which was highly unusual at that time and was characterised by simplifying close up portraits into blocks of colour that gave a highly contemporary finish. The artist also commonly chose glamorous women as subjects for his portraits and this made his work particularly fashionable and popular and there are clear similarities with the career of Andy Warhol who also had exceptional illustration skills which he combined with simple blocks of bold colour.

Roy Lichtenstein paintings also held captions that helped add depth to each scene that the artist created, helping to provide some small suggestion of conversation to add interest to the relationships found in these works. The use of typography helped to offer more opportunities to Lichtenstein in his paintings and he often chose to reflect society's realities through simple comments made by these glamorous people.

Lichtenstein loosely termed his style as Industrial painting in an attempt to avoid major mainstream movements which he prefered to avoid in order to preserve his own creative independance as an artist. However Lichtenstein wanted to portray his innovative style that drew heavily on 20th century cartoons and advertisements, most simply placed him within the contemporary umbrella group of Pop artists where he was joined by the likes of Andy Warhol and also David Hockney.

The bold and clear lines of colour used by Lichtenstein make them exceptionally contemporary in appearance and in most homes they would be more suitable than traditional art movements like Renaissance and Baroque. Posters are particularly suited to this type of art and so they would be perfect for students, especially with posters normally being much more cost effective options than framed art prints or bulkier stretched canvases.

Seductive Girl is another popular and glamorous work by Lichtenstein which features a saucy woman in a highly seductive pose. Women were always represented by this artist in a complementary and flattering way, and this work is no different. It ranks as one of the most frequently reproduced of all his works and typically is served best as a posters or giclee art print, the latter offering the most accurate reproduction of colour to the original.

Roy Lichtenstein spent much of his early career at Rutgers University before choosing to leave in 1964 in order to give his painting career as much attention as possible and try to build a reputation within the world of contemporary art that at the time included other greats like Andy Warhol and David Hockney. Leaving the university was certainly the correct decision as the skilled artist went onto produce large numbers of crtically acclaimed which otherwise he may not have had the time to do.

Drowning Girl is perhaps the best known of all paintings from Lichtenstein and continues his prefered method for creating contemporary portraits of glamorous women. Drowning Girl also includes his characteristic caption that helps to tell a story which adds depth and interest to the painting. The romantic feel to this work will appeal to many and the colour scheme is also typical in using key blocks from his consistent colour palette.

Whaam below is a set of two works which were displayed together in order to create a very wide painting that offer activity in the far left and right corners, with a plane firing missiles from one side, and then they explode on the other. It is an animated and exciting piece which is also amongst his best known and differs from the usual in that there are no portraits included, though it continues his cartoon approach which became very much his hallmark.
