Roy Lichtenstein was one of the first American Pop artists to achieve widespread renown and his work became a lightning rod for criticism and debate.
His art was inspired by comic strips, iconic American imagery, and from the culture of day-to-day life. He felt that all forms of communication are filtered through codes of languages and as such he often utilized dots to examine mechanical reproductions.
In the 1980s, Lichtenstein received several major large-scale commissions, including a 25-foot-high sculpture titled "Brushstrokes in Flight" for the Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio and a five-story-tall mural for the lobby of the Equitable Tower in New York.
