Note:  Roy Lichtenstein’s tongue-in-cheek humour is ever-present in this work as it makes a pun about the 15th-century Venetian school and the popular window coverings. Artists such as Titian and Veronese were considered to have brought a primacy of colour over the line of the artwork of this period. Lichtenstein subverts this with a cool palette and his recognisable bold outlines.
