ROY LICHTENSTEIN

roy_lichtenstein_gallery_main

Roy Lichtenstein merged popular imagery and “high art” to establish his own unique style. His paintings were based in part on the motifs and procedures of comic strips and graphic ad’s of the 1960’s. Along with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein was one of the central figures of American Pop Art movement. Rather than attempt to reproduce his subjects, his work tackled the way mass media portrays them.

Description: Paperback copy published on the occasion of the October 8, 1993 exhibition held by the Guggenheim. 393 pages profusely illustrated. This work aims to be the definitive monograph on Roy Lichtenstein, a founder of American Pop Art. It covers every phase of his career including: still lifes; landscapes; the “Brushstroke”, “Modern”, “Mirror”, “Entablature” and “Interiors” series; sculptures; murals; and public commissions. Some minor wear to wrappers, otherwise very good.
