Lichtenstein Posters, Paperback / softback Book

Lichtenstein Posters Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Roy Lichtenstein's art is most recognizable for its trademark Benday dots and two-dimensional planes, cartoon-like qualities that placed him at the forefront of the American Pop Art scene.

With its heavy emphasis on America's consumer culture, Lichtenstein's style lends itself easily to the poster genre.

This volume opens with his earliest poster, designed for his first exhibition at the Leo Castelli gallery in 1962, and closes with his last, which he completed in 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, public service messages, as well as his own exhibitions.

An essay by Jurgen Doring expounds upon Lichtenstein's development as an artist who blurred the boundaries between low- and high-brow art.

The book also includes an illustrated biography of the artist.
