Drowning Girl (1963) by Roy Lichtenstein. On display at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Fair use. Roy Lichtenstein, born 1923, made large meter high cartoon-like paintings, simulating the Ben Day printing dots used to colour the Sunday comics. [MH] {NR}
His paintings generally enlarged copies of single frames, including the balloons, the impersonal simplified black outlines, and the dots used for printing colours on cheap paper. His pictures, although hundreds of times bigger then actual comics, are so realistic that it is hard to accurately reproduce them for they then become indistinguishable from real comic strips. These pictures are perhaps the most paradoxical in the entire pop art field. [RA] {HI}
