Gallery label text 2013:

Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein first gained attention for his appropriation and elevation of the visual vocabulary of comic strips. Here he combines humor and drama with his signature Ben-Day dots, thick outlines, speech balloons, and cropped images.

Sweet Dreams Baby! was included in Eleven Pop Artists III, one of a series of three portfolios of prints by American and British Pop artists. Widely circulated in Europe, this portfolio was instrumental in generating international interest in the Pop Art movement.
