10 Famous Artworks Inspired by Other Famous Artworks

Roy Lichtenstein’s Bedroom at Arles, inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Bedroom at Arles

Another pop art appropriation, Lichtenstein’s 1992 work Bedroom at Arles is an odd take on the 1888 original. Created approximately a century later but done in the style of a woodcut, it imposes Lichtenstein’s graphic aesthetic and saturated colors on Van Gogh’s pale oil painting, replacing the latter’s anxious lines with the former’s cold, bold, straight ones. Equal parts parody and tribute, it underlines how different two takes on the same subject matter can be.
