Roy Lichtenstein – Classic of the New
Blondes, beds and black-and-white works sum up this selection of Roy Lichtenstein's series, based on an exhibition mounted at Vienna's famous Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2005.
This substantial catalogue contains 80 essential color reproductions, some in high-quality foldouts, under three thematic groupings: early black-and-white works of the 1960s; the woman as motif in his paintings from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s; and his interiors, especially those from the 1990s.
Leading scholars in the field, including Michael Lobel and Avis Berman, newly illuminate the Pop master's oeuvre in the context of this juxtaposition of early and late periods. Also included are studio photographs, some of which have never been published before, and finally, a biography and bibliography related specifically to the exhibition themes.
