The 1960s marked a dramatic change of direction in the art of Roy Lichtenstein. While his earlier works consisted mainly of paintings of American history and the American West, in 1961 he turned to black-and-white drawings. Inspired by advertising and media illustrations as well as by comic strips, Lichtenstein created about 70 impressive black-and-white drawings between 1961 and 1968. These were completely new in terms of subject and style. In the same period, the artist also made numerous black-and-white paintings, whose subjects were very close to those of the drawings. The latter, however, are not to be understood as preparatory studies for the works on canvas; they much rather form a separate, individual group of artworks. The Albertina presents the black-and-white drawings in conjunction with selected black-and-white paintings for the first time in this special exhibition, set to open on January 27 and running through May 15, 2011.
