''Self-quotation is only one manifestation of a basic characteristic of Lichtenstein's work which is now, once again, of importance--it is his practice of adapting and reworking the art of others, irrespective of its artistic quality: bet it a questionable historical painting of the nineteenth century, such as Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware or Albert Bierstadt's The Last of the Buffalo; or works by Western painters like Remington or Russell; or adverstisements; or paintings by Picasso and Cezanne.''--from the essay by Ernst Busche.
