2021-03-18T17:24:04-04:00

In 1965, Lichtenstein began working on the Brushstroke Series. His inspiration was a comic book cell, done by Dick Giordano. Giordano's work depicted an artist who emotionally drained after completing a painting. Lichtenstien's first Brushstroke painting was very similar to the work of Giordano but Lichtenstien continued to use the brushstroke in varying ways for the rest of his career.
