Roy Lichtenstein cartoon
“But is it art?” cartoon
A cartoon showing Roy Lichtenstein’s Whaam! painting, with a gallery goer thinking “But is it art?”. The visitor to the art gallery is a Lichtenstein style woman
Roy Lichtenstein was famous for copying images from comic magazines, and defining the resulting paintings as art. Part of the joke in this cartoon is that the cartoon is in the form of a cartoon strip – so it has a Lichtenstein copy of a cartoon strip copied into a cartoon strip about Lichtenstein copying cartoon strips.
