Representing a mirror, Lichtenstein challenges the viewer’s perception creating images in the same space that are not identical but have the same components. Created in black and white tones, there is a subtle use of blue which pops out, making the composition feel a little livelier. When that is mixed with the variations in dots, squares, line work, and strokes, the image really feels like a Lichtenstein giving a rather intimate look into his processes when the art is his own creation.
