Description


Roy Lichtenstein’s masterful Pop Art posters from 1962 to 1997 are showcased in this collection of 68 full-color reproductions.

Lichtenstein’s art is most recognizable for its trademark benday dots and two-dimensional planes, cartoonlike qualities that placed him at the forefront of the American Pop Art scene. With its emphasis on consumer culture, Lichtenstein’s style lent itself easily to the poster genre. This volume opens with his earliest poster, designed for his first exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery in 1962, and closes with his last, which he completed the year of his death. An additional section features reproductions from the Claus von Olden collection and includes posters and flyers that were produced all over the world using Lichtenstein’s iconic motifs. The works reflect Lichtenstein’s prolific imagination and ability to adapt his vision to the promotion of music and film festivals, theatrical performances, museums, restaurants, and public service messages as well as his own exhibitions. An essay discusses Lichtenstein’s development as an artist who blurred the boundaries between lowbrow and highbrow art.
