the painting on the left is also a Lichtenstein Drowning Woman (Museum of Modern Art, New York) The smiling figure in the Thyssen-Bornemisza painting stands out against the static geometrical background of the tiled wall, whereas the figure in the New York painting is submerged in a whirlpool of moving water, copied, according to the artist, from The Great Wave by the Japanese artist Hokusai.  Pictured above


DO YOU LIKE COMICS AND CARTOONS? Look at the examples of Roy Lichtenstein's comic book images here.  Think about how drama , speed, and mystery are created.  In the space draw a moment in the action a high speed chase [maybe a big art heist].  Are you going to use your favourite superhero or make up your own?

Pop art was an artistic movement that emerged in the late 1950s in England and the United States.  It is characterized by themes and techniques drawn from popular culture, such as advertising and comic

The Great Wave inspired the logo of Quiksilver, the surfwear and apparel manufacturer
Copies of the print are in many Western collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the British Museum in London, and in Claude Monet's house in Giverny, France.
