Description

“Finger Pointing ” exhibits Roy Lichtenstein’s formalist Pop aesthetic and his streamlined approach to pictorial narrative. A disembodied hand directly addresses the viewer in a tightly-cropped composition of Ben-Day dots, a visual effect created through the proliferation of dots to achieve larger sweeps of color and form.

About Roy Lichtenstein

View Profile »

Roy Lichtenstein (American, b. 1923) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement of the 1960s. Following a three-year stint in the army, Lichtenstein completed his degree at Ohio State University. While there, he met Hoyt L. Sherman, his professor and mentor who has been credited with influencing Lichtenstein’s future work. Shifting between cubism and expressionism, Lichtenstein’s oeuvre is characteristically marked by a highly stylized, comic book-like drawing, bright colors and very precise, graphic, compositions. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Ohio State University in 1949.
