The Blind Fiddler combines traditional folk iconography with an angular style clearly influenced by Cubism, revealing the importance of Lichtenstein’s experience as part of the École de Paris. The fiddler (a popular motif in the work of Chagall) is here paired with a child, and stands in front of a colourful urban cityscape, which recalls the Orphism of Sonia and Robert Delaunay.
