About The Artist's Studio - The Dance painting
Lichtenstein's work mainly represents Matisse's work as a cartoon in the mode of pop culture. It is essentially a parody of the earlier painting by Matisse. He reinterprets Matisse's Still Life as The Artist's Studio. Coffee cups replace the vases of flowers, as well as paintbrushes and other detritus that one might find in the studio.
In this painting, he uses the processes used in mass production of visual media, such as the Benday dots to represent certain shades of colors.
If you like this beautiful colored pencil set you will also adore Lichtenstein playing cards game.
The colored pencil set of 12 is housed in a metal case painted with Roy Lichtenstein's Study for Artist's Studio, The Dance, 1974, which is in MoMA's collection. Part of Lichtenstein's Artist's Studio series, the work pays homage to the iconic painting by Henri Matisse.
Roy Lichtenstein is one of the prime contributors to the Pop Art movement. Lichtenstein art essentially paved the way for more commercial styles of art to flourish by blending the “low” and “high” forms of art and create something new. Using comic books and advertisements as inspiration, he reimagined pop culture through a highly skilled and critical lens.
Lichtenstein eventually established his own and very unique voice. One of his most effective pieces, Whaam! is a stellar example of his ability to imagine stunning works of art. Whaam! is energetic and also features his ability to create a consistent and well-composed image. The diptych has an expressive power and remains a fantastic piece of work.
Lichtenstein art achieved success worldwide, yet would still often be criticized for his methods and choices of subject matter. Despite this, he remains seen as a definitive example of the Pop Art movement and a master artist in his own right.
