The Impossible Collection of Roy Lichtenstein
One of the most innovative and influential artists of the second half of the 20th century, Roy Lichtenstein's comic strip-inspired paintings reinvigorated the American art scene. Lichtenstein helped originate the Pop Art movement, taking ordinary objects – a hot dog, a tire, a spray can – and imbuing them with colossal power. During the course of his lifetime, Lichtenstein created more than 5,000 paintings, prints, sculptures and other objects. From the iconic Whaam! to reinterpretations of paintings by Picasso and van Gogh, this hand-bound, limited-edition volume features 100 of Lichtenstein's most memorable works, chosen by art historian Avis Berman.
