One of the better articles on Roy Lichtenstein Martin Gayford for London's Telegraph Arts media..plus an example that I found is here

At 37, Roy Lichtenstein had a dead-end job and a studio full of paintings that no one wanted. By 40 he was a celebrity. As a new retrospective opens in London, Martin Gayford talks to his widow about life with the Pop art pioneer
Roy Lichtenstein was, with Andy Warhol, the epitome of Pop art. His paintings are everywhere, not only in the great galleries of the world (and soon to be seen at the Hayward Gallery, in a doubtless highly successful retrospective) but also on mugs, T-shirts, posters and postcards. Cool, stylish and witty, Lichtenstein's art was part of the essence of the 1960s
