painting: crying girl


Crying Girl was one of Roy Lichtenstein?s first ventures into producing enamel-on-steel multiples of the comic-strip imagery he had first introduced in conventional hand-painted canvases. This innovative, industrial means of ?mass production? was as ground-breaking as his distinctive subject matter. With other leading American Pop artists, Lichtenstein turned to popular culture and the worlds of commerce and advertising for attitudes and approaches as well as for content.I think that the women is sadness because of the artist knew the 1960s history is unequal. i did one of the research our feminist in my perviously project, i think this is kind of relevant. because women has lower rights in 1960s,they did not gain any same right with the men, but now they are same.
