Roy Lichtenstein Thunderbolt

Roy Lichtenstein’s banners are deceptive in their simplicity. The artist’s iconic imagery of enlarged Ben-Day dots takes on an intensity not available in any other medium. Simple circular dot patterns are rendered with several layers of felted and stitched wool. Created by the Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Company, Lichtenstein was one of several Pop artists who worked with the company to create low edition multiples.
