Roy Lichtenstein’s story

Girl With Hair Ribbon was painted by Roy Lichtenstein during a period in which he was working with comics exclusively. He has been always associated with comics, and his paintings from that period are his most well-known, even though it lasted only four years. Andy Warhol worked with comics too, but Lichtenstein, having more fully fleshed the idea out and bringing it closer to its logical conclusion is more closely associated with them in the pantheon of American pop artists.

The aesthetic of Lichtenstein’s comic paintings is achieved in a similar manner. The original aspects of the image are maintained, but its size is greatly increased and a single detail is focused on, in this case the woman’s head and face.
