In late 2017, "Masterpiece," a painting by the late pop art master Roy Lichtenstein, sold for $165 million in a private sale. The sale was a far cry from the early 1950s when the young artist struggled to find acceptance as a painter in Cleveland. Roy's wife, Isabel, was the family's breadwinner and a prominent interior decorator. She developed a clientele of upper-middle-class Clevelanders who appreciated her taste for what is now known as mid-century modern design. Isabel was a female entrepreneur at a time when many women were homemakers. While Roy Lichtenstein's impact on the art world is well documented, the story of his pre-pop days in Cleveland and the woman who supported him as he developed his signature style is largely unknown. ISABEL AND ROY half-hour documentary that traces that tale.
