Brushstroke Group

Roy Lichtenstein's Brushstroke Group

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997)
Painted Aluminum
Acquired: January 2007

The sculpture leaps from the land like five energetic strokes of a loaded paintbrush, affirming the value of creative experimentation. A founding father of the American Pop Art movement of the 1960s, Lichtenstein was fascinated by the brush stroke as a painter’s defining mark and as a symbol of tradition that is constantly reinventing itself.
