    Definitely. No one had ever heard of them in Elbonia till he recontextualised them.

    Guys, he totally printed them on canvas man. If he would have been even smarter he could have done some "hand embellishments" and rocked the house.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    Question: Did he copy panels from existing comics, or make up his own?

    He copied from existing panels. If he made his own I would have no problem with it whatsoever.

    This is Lichtenstein's:

    Acclaimed Artist" Actually Just Stole Video Game Images

    And this is the original:

    Acclaimed Artist" Actually Just Stole Video Game Images

    Obviously there are differences but that's the kind of thing that would have the art community pouncing all over him today.

    Here's another one:

    Lichtenstein's:

    Acclaimed Artist" Actually Just Stole Video Game Images

    Original:

    Acclaimed Artist" Actually Just Stole Video Game Images

    This is what the MOMA has to say about it:

    Lichtenstein based many of his early paintings on imagery he found in comic books. The source for this work is Run for Love! published by DC Comics in 1962, the cover of which the artist significantly altered to arrive at the finished composition. In the original illustration, the drowning girl’s boyfriend appears in the background, clinging to a capsized boat. Lichtenstein cropped the image dramatically, showing the girl alone and encircled by a threatening wave. He changed the caption from “I don’t care if I have a cramp!” to “I don’t care!” and the boyfriend’s name from Mal to Brad. In addition to appropriating comic books’ melodramatic content, Lichtenstein manually simulated the Benday dots used in the mechanical reproduction of images.
    Oh he cropped it and he changed the name, well that's not plagiarism then! *rolls eyes*

    And I couldn't find anywhere that said that he paid or asked the original artists to use their work. He was never sued by the way. How he got away with that is way beyond me.

    It's just a different kind of schtick..."pop art"...used to be popular. It was all about apropriating common or "low brow" schtuff, modifying it to one degree or another and hanging it on gallery and museum walls (I'm sure you know what that was all about). Lichtenstein was more of an experimental printmaker guy and people were interested in that aspect as well. But yeah, entirely different kind of thing.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    If he had only flipped the images, he would have gotten away with it!
    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Also, whilst we're on the subject of Modern "Art" - is it just me, or does what Rothko made constitute a war crime?

    No. (Credited only in the most general way, paid, no.)

    Copied, with minor modifications. Although the direct comic panel paintings were only the first few years of his career, and for the rest of it he applied the primary color/benday pattern vocabulary to different subject matter.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Lichtenstein
    Most of his best-known artworks are relatively close, but not exact, copies of comic book panels, a subject he largely abandoned in 1965. (He would occasionally incorporate comics into his work in different ways in later decades.) These panels were originally drawn by such comics artists as Jack Kirby and DC Comics artists Russ Heath, Tony Abruzzo, Irv Novick, and Jerry Grandenetti, who rarely received any credit. Jack Cowart, executive director of the Lichtenstein Foundation, contests the notion that Lichtenstein was a copyist, saying: "Roy's work was a wonderment of the graphic formulae and the codification of sentiment that had been worked out by others. The panels were changed in scale, color, treatment, and in their implications. There is no exact copy." However, some have been critical of Lichtenstein's use of comic-book imagery and art pieces, especially insofar as that use has been seen as endorsement of a patronizing view of comic by the art mainstream; noted comics author Art Spiegelman commented that "Lichtenstein did no more or less for comics than Andy Warhol did for soup."

    It looks to me that this guy looked around at everyone he knew and thought:

    They're so stupid they'll be throwing their money at me! -- He was right. What did he have to lose. I doubt anyone has ever heard of him until now. He probably figured that as long as he keep a low profile no one would ever catch him. The mistake he made was having a show. He could have continued for years if he just setup tables at local romanian artfairs.
