Lichtenstein Remembered

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of Lichtenstein Remembered at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, an exhibition of sculptures and related studies by Roy Lichtenstein, curated by Irving Blum in recognition of the centenary of the artist’s birth.

To create the “miraculous drawings in space” that constitute his sculptural work, Lichtenstein employed an array of visual strategies familiar from his painting and printmaking. Representing glasses and lamps, portrait heads and stylized explosions, he produced witty and seductive objects in the Pop art mode of which he was a progenitor. The sculptures incorporate multiple references to the aesthetic codes of modern art and design, and while they function as three-dimensional projections of the artist’s paintings, they also play on the fundamental artificiality of sculpture itself.

Fully illustrated with color plates and details, the catalogue reproduces fifty works together with a foreword by Larry Gagosian; essays by Daniel Belasco, Adam Gopnik, and Steve Martin; and a conversation between Irving Blum and Dorothy Lichtenstein. It also features documentary and contextual photographs accompanied by quotations about Lichtenstein from fellow artists, collaborators, collectors, curators, gallerists, and friends, including Naomi Spector Antonakos, Georg Baselitz, Edye Broad, Barbara Bertozzi Castelli, James dePasquale, Ruth Fine, David Hockney, James Mayor, Adam McEwen, James Rondeau, Ed Ruscha, and Sheena Wagstaff.
