art spaces / roy lichtenstein's girl with ball

girl with ball.jpg

i saw this painting at the museum of modern art in new york this last weekend and remembered how much i love roy lichtenstein. i immediately started thinking about how i am going to use the work in one of my kids' rooms one day, or perhaps a playroom. lichtenstein was inspired by comics printed in newspapers, and created works almost directly from images he found. he was closely associated with the pop art movement. his paintings celebrate the banal and tiny images that readers often overlook, turning them in to a form of high art.

this kid's room was inspired by lichtenstein's painting girl with ball done in 1961.
