Roy Lichtenstein Paper Plate (1969) Paper Cup (1967)
I'm never drawing the object itself; I'm only drawing a depiction of the object—a kind of crystallized symbol of it.
Pop Art as a movement played with imagery of popular culture icons. It doesn’t get much more iconic than Roy Lichtenstein’s Paper Plate and Paper cup. These works are in the permanent collection of MoMA, Tate London, Centre Pompidou, LACMA, Guggenheim, and are listed in the artist’s catalog raisonné.
