Did you ever read The Mysteries of Harris Burdick as a child? It features a series of illustrations and a single lines of text supposedly removed from larger stories. As a result, each image and accompanying line is deeply enigmatic and a remarkably fulfilling source of inspiration. Just skimming through the book leaves the reader with the sense that great stories are out there, just waiting to be found. Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art is kind of like that. Recreating a single scene from archaic comic books, he captures a single moment from a broader story that leaves the viewer desperately wondering what happens next – and what came before.
