Item description for Roy Lichtenstein by Roy Lichtenstein, Eckhard Schneider, Avis Berman, Michael Craig-Martin & Siegfried Gohr...
Blondes, beds, and black-and-white works sum up this selection of Roy Lichtenstein's series, based on an exhibition mounted at Vienna's famous Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2005. This substantial catalogue contains 80 essential color reproductions, some in high-quality foldouts, under three thematic groupings: early black-and-white works of the 60s; the woman as motif in his paintings from the 60s, 70s, and 80s; and his interiors, especially those from the 90s. Leading scholars in the field, including Michael Lobel and Avis Berman, newly illuminate the Pop master's oeuvre in the context of this juxtaposition of early and late periods. Also included are studio photographs, some of which have never been published before, and finally, a biography and bibliography related specifically to the exhibition themes.

His early work was based on American genre and history painting, and took on Cubist and Expressionist styles. His first proto-Pop work was created in 1956; his first pop 'Brushstroke' painting appeared in 1965. Lichtenstein died in 1997.

Pop at its best Apr 9, 2007
This book is the catalogue for an exhibition held at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2006. It studies Lichtenstein's work chronologically and dividing it by themes (women, interiors, early paintings...). The reproductions are very good and even show the paintings in their current frame (an unusual step which I think gives an extra dimension to the works). A very interesting book, easy to read, on an artist that changed the way we look at art.
