We're unlikely to receive more of this item.

As I Opened Fire was originally painted by Roy Lichtenstein in 1964 and is owned by the Stedelyk Museum in Amsterdam. Although this print is an open edition (not limited to a set number), it has not been published in as great a quantility as some of his other works, it has therefore become a more collectable piece. As I Opened Fire is always sold as a triptych (i.e. three separate prints sold as one). It is a superb example of Lichtenstein's comic strip style which made him one of the leading figures of the 196's Pop Art Movement.ᅠ

About The Artist - Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the leading figures of the Pop Art movement. His iconic art works are recognized even today as pioneering art which defined the basic premise of Pop Art through parody. Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner and his art work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style.

Roy Lichtenstein was best known for these comic book style characters and explosions, which featured individually hand painted Ben-Day dots which aimed to characterise and mimic the mechanical printing process which so interested him.

Lichtenstein's work is still recognized today, and his work is still widely regarded, alongside the work of Andy Warhol, as heralding the beginning of the Pop Art movement. Here at artrepublic online we have a range of Roy Lichtenstein art prints.
