  • In 1961 Lichtenstein began his first Pop Art
    (popular art) paintings using cartoon images and
    techniques. He was a bit cynical and believed
    that Americans were only interested in comic book
    art and couldnt handle anything that wasnt
    superficially entertaining.

Personally, I wanted (my art) to look programmed
or impersonal but I don't really believe I am
being impersonal when I do it. And I don't think
you could do this. Roy Lichtenstein
