Roy Lichtenstein's ABC

Bob Adelman


The founder of pop art, Roy Lichtenstein, celebrates the ABC in his own unique style


A is for ART (of course), represented by Lichtenstein’s first pop comic masterpiece, Look Mickey. D is for a comically vicious growling Dog. And H is a horse that races by in dizzying dots and stripes.

One of the founders of pop art, Roy Lichtenstein is best known for large scale renditions of comic-strip art, and for fusing comic-book techniques with high art in his appropriations of such artists as Picasso and Mondrian. His distinctive look filled with brilliant colour, dots and stripes is one of the most identifiable in all contemporary art. In the book, Lichtenstein's unique style celebrates the ABC, with results that are surprising, delightful and amusing.
