The Nude Series: Roy Lichtenstein

November 29, 2013

When Roy Lichtenstein comes to mind, we are usually transported to the comic book styles and caricatures that he is well known for as opposed to nude models. The Nudes series was Lichtenstein’s last great series of works, which were created in 1993. In creating the series, he took the classic form of the nude and transformed it using his signature pop art language. The works are especially interesting and prominent due to the balance between geometrical shaps and the curvilinear form of the female body.
