Girl with Ball

← Back to the Portfolio

Original painting by Roy Lichtenstein (1961)

Girl with Ball is one of Lichtenstein’s earliest Pop Art works and was inspired by a 1961 advertisement for the Mount Airy Lodge in the Pocono Mountains. The ad, which started running in 1955, was widely published in the New York metropolitan area and elsewhere, including several prominent newspapers such as The New York Times and the Daily News. The advertisement was still running in newspapers more than twenty years after Lichtenstein produced the work and is now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
