More information about this artwork

Along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein is one of the pioneers of American Pop Art. Interested in comic books and graphic design, his works paraphrase commercial and advertisement imagery, parodying the crude printing process of what he called ‘industrial painting’. Featuring thick outlines, bold colors and flat planes of stripes and Ben-Day dots, Lichtenstein confounded reality and artificiality, high art and mass culture.

If Sandwich and Soda had a Coca Cola logo on the glass, it could easily be mistaken for an advertisement. This piece is a sublime example of Lichtenstein’s fascination with advertising techniques of the mid-20th century, combining the ready-made quality of the mass-media with his unique painterly gesture by using clean and thick lines, flat planes, obscured perspective and bright primary colors. Roy Lichtenstein is one of the most influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century, being an inspiration for many contemporary artists for his astute perspective on commercial art.
