"Lichtenstein took great delight in re-imagining familiar works of art, opening the way to the appropriationist artists of the 1980s, but insisting on his own creative role in reinterpreting and altering his sources in his own voice, much as he had done in his comic-book paintings. There is never a sense of him trying to deceive the viewer, or of passing off a found image as his own; the pleasure, on the contrary, lies in the affectionate translation of sources clearly identifiable to educated viewers into a composition of graphic clarity and [effectiveness] that rejects the personal handwriting of brushwork, but that paradoxically could not have emerged from any studio but his own."
Where does the author believe the enjoyment lies for the viewer when considering Lichtenstein's artwork?
Paradox: a statement that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth
Composition: all the elements and imagery that appears on the paper to create an entire work of art
Grid Method: A drawing technique artists use to transfer or enlarge an image proportionately when creating a work of art
Livingstone, Marco. Tate Etc.. Spring2013, Issue 27, p31-39. 8p.
