Brushstrokes - rendered in the tights, comic style - was a parody of the action painting of Abstract Expressionism, the movement to which Pop Art was a reaction. The irony presented here is Lichtenstein's careful rendering of drips and splatters - a sendup of the spontaneity prized by action painters.
