Experimentations with collages, trying to connect modern photography and old paintings
In Tate Modern
A central figure of American pop art. Roy Lichtenstain (1923-1997)
His paintings were an instant sensation, provoking both delight and outrage.
Such a big variety of work impressed and inspired me. I enjoyed his late paintings the most (Nude and Chinese Landscapes). The amount of work he made through his life was just unbelievable
Nude(image). Unlike many artists, he didn’t use live models for his depictions of the female body; instead he returned to his archive of comic clippings to select female characters as subjects- and than literally undressed them, by imagining their bare bodies under their clothes before painting them nude.
