Artist
    (October 27, 1923-September 29, 1997)
    Born in Manhattan, New York
    Pop Artist
    Best known for paintings based on comic book images
    Works include 'Look Mickey' (1961), 'Whaam!' (1962), 'Frightened Girl' (1964), 'Modular Painting with Nine Panels' (1968), 'Mermaid' (1979), 'Brushstrokes in Flight' (1983) and 'Singapore Brushstrokes' (1997)
    Life magazine asked 'Is he the worst artist in America?' (1964)
    He said, 'I don't think artists like myself have the faintest idea what we're doing, but we try to put it in words that sound logical.'
    He did not credit the comic book artists whose works his paintings were based on.
    The copyright warning on the Lichtenstein Foundation web site is accompanied by a picture of a fierce dog going 'Grrrrrrrrr!!' - an exact copy of an image by Joe Kubert.
    He created a mural for the New York World's Fair (1964) and a sculpture for the Barcelona Olympics (1992).
    He became only the third living artist to have a work sell for over $5 million with the auction of 'Torpedo...Los!' (1989)
    He donated 154 of his works to the National Gallery of Art (1996).
    He rarely took himself seriously, commenting 'I'm not really sure what social message my art carries, if any.'
