Drowning Girl by Roy Lichtenstein is an original poster created in 1989 by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The image is based off a story from a 1962 DC Comic, titled "Secret Love #83". In the center of an image, a girl is swarmed by both water and emotion, seemingly about to drown. The speech bubble reads "I don’t care! I’d rather sink than call Brad for help!" The work by Lichtenstein was hand-painted and is an apt demonstration of the artists’ ability to imitate the process of mechanical print production.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923 - 1997) was one of the most influential artists involved in the Pop Art movement. The Pop art movement emerged in both the US and the United Kingdom in the mid to late 1950’s, with its aim focused on to presenting a challenge to the mainstream traditions of fine art. Lichtenstein’s paintings closely and purposely appropriate the imagery and style of comic strips. Through his works, Lichtenstein unveils an interest in solving pictorial problems as well as a rich dialogue within forms. His close consideration of the comic style reinvigorated the American Art scene and helped alter the history of Modern Art. His works appear in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
