This museum art print is of one of Pop Art,s most inconic images, Girl with Hair Ribbon,. The print is of an origianl oil and magenta on canvas painting from 1965 by American artist Roy Lictenstein, which is now located in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo. Girl with Hair Ribbon, was painted by Roy Lichtenstein during a period in which he was exclusively working with comic book imagery, and close-ups of women in particular. This image was appropriated from a comic by John Romita senior. In the 1960s comics were created with a reduced colour palette for cost reasons. Lichtensetin imitated this striking style of industrial printing in his paintings. In this print you can see his famous use of Benday dots, to express the girl,s skin tone.



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.
