About This Book
Roy Lichtenstein was one of the creators of Pop Art. He used Benday dots, strong black lines, and flat, bright colors to recreate comic-book images. Although many people hated Pop Art at first, Roy Lichtenstein became a beloved artist all over the world.
These books are without a doubt the definitive — and most entertaining — biographies of artists for young readers. Author/artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the masters' artwork. Now printed in a dozen different languages worldwide, and with more than two million copies of the English editions sold, these books have helped countless children around the world "get to know" the world's greatest artists!
