Celebrated pop-artist Roy Lichtenstein recently had a retrospective of his work displayed at New York’s Gagosian Gallery which began last week. The exhibition is the first of its kind to focus solely on the artist’s works ranging from paintings to sculptures and drawings created between 1972 and the early 80s. Lichtenstein’s signature aesthetic inspired by newspaper and advertisements has become an often replicated style and has firmly cemented the artist’s place as one of the Pop Art world’s great masters. In addition to the retrospective exhibition, an illustrated catalog will release including an essay from Princeton University’s Professor of American Art, John Wilmerding, a pictorial from Louise Lawler and an interview with collector and dealer Joe Helman. The Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes Exhibition will run until July 30th, 2010.
