The Drawings of Roy Lichtenstein
"Produced in association with The Museum of Modern Art, this program provides an overview of Roy Lichtenstein’s work, focusing on its stylistic origins as well as his technique. Lichtenstein begins by drawing freehand—“It’s a way of describing my thoughts as quickly as possible,” he says—as the video presents examples of the sketches that served as the basis for finished paintings. Then, MoMA curator Bernice Rose discusses the influence of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Art Deco, Surrealism, Abstractionism, and commercial art on Lichtenstein’s imagery. “The cartoon seems to have everything I need to make modern drawings,” Lichtenstein says.
