Roy Lichtenstein: Greene Street Mural

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Roy Lichtenstein: Greene Street Mural at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York. It chronicles the creation of the original 1983 Greene Street Mural by Lichtenstein at Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, since destroyed, as well as the 2015 iteration, which introduced a new generation of viewers to this legendary project.

In Greene Street Mural, Roy Lichtenstein layered pervasive images from his Pop lexicon—marble-patterned composition notebooks, cartoonish brushstrokes, and Swiss cheese—with other motifs, including the Neo-Geo tropes of his Perfect/Imperfect paintings, faux woodblock shading patterns, and office items such as filing cabinets, envelopes, and folding chairs.

The publication includes an essay by art historian and curator Camille Morineau; a conversation between Lichtenstein’s former studio assistants, James DePasquale, Robert McKeever, and Brian O’Leary, and Alison McDonald; rarely seen photography by Bob Adelman capturing the creation of the original mural, and extensive documentation relating to Lichtenstein’s twelve realized and four unrealized murals.
