Two weeks after Senator Robert F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1968 in a hotel in Los Angeles, Time magazine published this image that they commissioned Roy Lichtenstein to make. The original cover is now highly collectable. I remember studying it in early high school and it was the beginning of my love for pop art. It’s amazing and incredibly sad that this image still holds so much meaning… maybe even more than it did in the 60’s. In a way it’s a masterpiece… so few lines and an extremely limited palette yet it can convey so much meaning ♥
