In the newest of Abrams' award-winning line of picture book biographies of artists, Susan Goldman Rubin evocatively explores Roy Lichtenstein's work and life and his groundbreaking influence on the art world.

The book includes a bibliography, an index, and a list of museums where you can see Lichtenstein's work.
