Sweet Dreams Baby!,
Considered to be one of the pioneering artist's first ""true"" Pop prints, Sweet Dreams, Baby! confronts the viewer with the very essence of the Pop movement: mass culture directly in front of you – bold, vibrant, and dynamic. Bursting with stylized text and Ben Day dots, Lichtenstein utilises the pervasiveness of comic books to instantly make a connection with the viewer. The dual nature of a normally affectionate phrase, ""Sweet Dreams, Baby!"" highlights the artist's wit and sends his ""goodbyes"" to the man who was just knocked out.
