"Lichtenstein: creator or copycat?
By Alex Beam, Globe Columnist | October 18, 2006
Art teacher David Barsalou has an interesting avocation. He has found and catalog ed almost every comic book panel later blown up and sold for megabucks by 1960s Op Art icon Roy Lichtenstein. So far, Barsalou has about 140. You will see a sample on this page, or go to his website, Deconstructing Roy Lichtenstein.
Color me naive, but I never thought Lichtenstein's work was a direct copy of scenes from comic books. I assumed that he stylized certain scenes suggested by the comic vernacular of the 1950s and 1960s. ``He tried to make it seem as though he was making major compositional changes in his work, but he wasn't," says Barsalou, who teaches at the High School of Commerce in Springfield. ``The critics are of one mind that he made major changes, but if you look at the work , he copied them almost verbatim. Only a few were original."

Para mim, enorme fã do trabalho de Roy Lichtenstein, é como levar com um barrote pela cabeça abaixo. Custa a engolir, mas as evidências são f#%!%@$! O Boston Globe também promove uma sondagem: Isto afecta a visão que tem do trabalho de Lichtenstein? Pois com certeza que sim.
