Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) was an American pop artist who became a leading figure in the new art movement. Favoring the comic strip, his work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. The exhibition moves beyond these familiar images to include the artist’s lesser-known 'brass-n-glass' sculptures, riffs on art-history icons and landscapes in the Chinese style. Much of the work straddles the line between fine art and kitsch. Falling in the former category, Seascape (1964) eschews representational forms in favour of fields of dots that suggest traditional landscape elements. But for every Seascape, there’s a Landscape with Figures and Rainbow (1980).
