Works by American Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein Exhibited in the Netherlands

AMSTERDAM – Admirers of pop art are from Friday to be able to catch a glimpse of some of the works by dot-work icon Roy Lichtenstein in the Dutch capital Amsterdam.

Lichtenstein’s artworks, many of which were inspired by comic strips or the world of advertising, feature bold portraits of women, outlined with thick black lines and sporting brightly colored hair.

“The influence of Lichtenstein’s art is still evident in many forms of artistic expression: from painting to advertising, from photography to design and fashion,” the museum said on its website.

“You recognize his works at first glance: he has become part of the unconscious cultural heritage to all of us,” it added.

Lichtenstein’s work is often characterized by the use of large Ben-Day dots, which are evenly-spaced spots of color placed to create the sensation of a fully painted field.

Among the works on display are pieces from his “Reflections” print series and “Puzzle Portrait” (1978), as seen in epa images.

Some of his most well-known pieces include “Whaam!” (1963), which depicts a fighter plane firing a rocket, and “Drowning Girl” of the same year, which shows a blue-haired woman appearing to cry in a pool of water, a thought-bubble hovering close to her head reading: “I don’t care! I’d rather sink – than call Brad for help!”

The Moco Museum is to host “Roy Lichtenstein, Lasting Influence,” a collection of artworks by the famed American pop artist, from Nov. 3 to May 31, 2018.

There is also to be an interactive installation depicting his 1992 “Bedroom in Arles,” which was based on Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 painting by the same name.
