Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid 1950s in Britain and in the 1960s in the United States. Pop art merges popular and mass culture with fine art, while injecting humor, irony, and recognizable imagery and content into the mix. Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising and comic books, and was a reaction to abstract expressionism. Pop art is aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to the elitist culture in art, mostly through the use of parody and irony.

Andy Warhol is probably the most famous figure in Pop Art. For American pop art, it is Roy Lichtenstein. His work probably defines the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody. Just like this painting, Lichtenstein selected the old-fashioned comic strip as subject matter, and produced a hard-edged, precise composition that documents while it parodies in a soft manner. Lichtenstein used oil and Magna paint in his best known works, such as Drowning Girl (1963), which was appropriated from the lead story in DC Comics' Secret Hearts #83. (Drowning Girl now is in the collection of Museum of Modern Art, New York.)
