Remembering Roy Lichtenstein.

Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. He died yesterday in Manhattan at the age of 73. He was one of the inventors of pop art in the 1960's, finding inspiration for his paintings in comic books and advertisements. Lichtenstein's work often replicated the heavy black outlines, bright colors and dots of a color comic strip found in a newspaper. Called by one critic the "supreme virtuoso of pop", his work was filled with constant references to high and low arts as well as to his own work. We remember him with an interview from 11/8/93.

The Whitney Museum in New York is currently showing an exhibit featuring many his works through September 21. (Originally aired 9/3/87)

Pop Artist David Hockney.

Pop artist David Hockney. He's worked in many mediums-- from painting and drawing to working with fax and copy machines. Hockney made waves in the art world with his take on photography--compiling hundreds of polaroid snap-shots in a photocollage. In 1979 Hockney started to lose his hearing. Now, near deaf, his art reflects his insights on his loss of hearing. Hockney's new book, "That's The Way I See It" (Chronicle Books), is his second volume of reflections.
