Here are the documents from our Pop art workshops. Watch or listen to them several times : you will train your ear and be able to pick out more words and information each time!
This is the link to the National Gallery of Art's website (workshop 1). The painting Look Mickey can actually be seen in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. (NB: you listened to the second audio document on the page, 1min39)
The video The art and the artist gives you more information about Roy Lichtenstein (workshop 2).
This is the link to the article on the Tate Modern's website about the explosive art of Lichtenstein (workshop 3).
Now choose you favourite painting by Lichtenstein (you can choose a painting from the Tate Modern website above or one of the paintings below) and be ready to DESCRIBE it and JUSTIFY your choice. Use what you have learnt in the workshops. Food for thought: can you make a link between your favourite painting and what was happening in the US at the time?
Finally, here is an additional video about pop artist Roy Lichtenstein where you can see him paint in his studio and hear his son Mitchell talk about his dad (Mitchell Lichtenstein is an American actor, screenwriter and producer).
