I Love Liberty,
(Screenprint). Next to Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein is considered the

War II, and then received his masters. Like Warhol, he worked in
the commercial graphic business for a whilemaking designs and decorating
shop windows. Lichtensteins career changed drastically with his
first painting in the style of a comic stripMickey Mouse and Donald
Duck. Working frequently with stencils, he producing rows of oversized
dots that made his paintings or prints look like a mass publication product.
