Roy Lichtenstein was an American pop artist best known for his boldly-colored parodies of comic strips and advertisements. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein became a leading figure of the new Pop Art movement. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein's bright, graphic works parodied American popular culture and the art world itself.
As I Opened Fire is a triptych with verbal and temporal continuity. In 1972, it was regarded as Lichtenstein's most ambitious exercise in strangely uniting, visually warring elements." Depicting a short few seconds during an aircraft battle, the painting is based on three panels of the original narrative which Lichtenstein has altered to improve its formal coherence. This piece represents his affinity towards " highly emotional content, yet detached impersonal handling" As I Opened Fire exhibits Lichtenstein's "formal imagination". We see successive tighter views of the gun muzzles in action accompanied by an onomatopoeia, which provides cinematic flow despite the varying skies. As I Opened Fire is regarded as a "very uncompromising military triptych".

I was really impressed with the quality of the work that I received from Tallenge Store. I love knowing that I’m supporting artists from around the world.
I would definitely recommend Tallenge Store, and especially the Van Gogh Collection! Thanks for a great experience.
From seeing a piece of art that I liked to hanging it on my wall, all aspects were easy and it felt like I had a personal assistant throughout the whole process.
I've always collected more traditionally-styled artwork, but I just really love Modern Master’s Collection on Tallenge Store. I enjoy looking at these works every day, so a big thanks to Tallenge Store for broadening my taste in art.
I had never purchased art online before but I’m happy I did because this painting is great. Such a great experience to shop on Tallenge Store.
Tallenge Store was the first website I found where I could find art within my budget that I absolutely love. I just got my very own apartment so it was important to me to find art that suited me and I couldn’t be happier!
I look at the painting often throughout the day, especially when I’m feeling stuck or overwhelmed, and instantly feel better, inspired and energized by the artist’s choice of colors and shapes.
I have been spending a lot of time in my living room and have the picture I bought from Tallenge Store. It is a thing of beauty! The picture brings me such joy and peace. I am grateful for your purchasing program which makes it possible for me to own this!
I got the painting this weekend – it is absolutely awesome. It’s hanging in my office, where I spend a huge amount of time and so it’s well placed. It is bright and happy.
The team has been great. They listened to what we wanted and help us to choose the best one. It looks great in my wall now. Thank you Tallenge Store.
There really is something for everyone. What's more, I was impressed with the personalized service provided by Tallenge Store right from selection to actual delivery of the Art works. Keep up the good work!
The team answered my questions very patiently prior to purchase and accommodated all my requests. The painting itself was delivered on time to me in London and the quality of packaging was commendable.
