Roy Lichtenstein: Pop Remix traces the artists print projects from the 1950s to the 1990s, exploring how he appropriated, transformed and remixed numerous art historical sources including Claude Monets Impressionism, Max Ernsts Surrealism and Willem de Koonings Abstract Expressionism. Lichtenstein reinterpreted the work of these artistic giants and significant art movements using an instantly recognisable graphic aesthetic, effectively branding his art with a signature Lichtenstein look to secure his place alongside those masters he so admired. Slick, intelligent and humorous, Lichtensteins remixes of romance and war comics, brushstrokes and nude girls are among the best-known Pop prints.
