Roy Lichtenstein Fact file and examples of his work.

Roy Lichtenstein Fact file and examples of his work.

This resource contains a brief biography of American Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein. It also contains 8 pages of his most famous Pop Art work from the 1960's through to the 1990's. This resource would be a great starting point for a sketchbook or introduction to Lichtenstein's work. If you have downloaded this resource please take the time to write a review - all feedback is greatly appreciated. I also have fact files for Piet Mondrian, Henri Matisse, Cubism and John Muafangejo on my site.
