Roy's Girls

Roy LichtensteinIn the summer of 1961, Roy Lichtenstein ushered in the decade that would, in later years be so well known for its art, with his set of iconic images of women. The story has it that Lichtenstein’s children challenged him by saying that he couldn’t paint as well as the characters in their comic books. Well, Daddy showed them. The Gagosian Gallery’s exhibition, “Girls,” presents many of Lichtenstein’s most famous images, but only until June 28th, so go check it out…before it’s too late...dum dum dum.
