Woman in Bath (1963)

The woman’s hands and face stand out against the static geometry of the tiled wall behind her, emphasised by strong black lines against a white background. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein was one of the artists who abandoned Abstract Expressionism’s language, resulting in the Pop Art movement. However, in his portrayal of a topic frequently handled in the history of art—in the form of ‘The Bath of Venus,’ he succeeds in confronting appearances, substituting the painter’s manual labour for the mechanical replication of the cartoon.
