Art Spiegelman

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter includes a 1990 highly critical review of MoMA’s High and Low: Modern Art, Popular Culture in cartoon format (image) by Art Spiegelman. This chapter discusses Roy Lichtenstein as “dead” art, excluded artists and genres, high ticket prices, Krazy Kat, and overall conceptual issues. Spiegelman explains: “They made myopic choices not daring the risks that come with a risky topic.”

Keywords:   Roy Lichtenstein, Krazy Kat, Art Spiegelman, High and Low: Modern Art, Popular Culture, cartoon
