Item description for Roy Lichtenstein: All About Art by David Sylvester Michael Lobel...

Asked why he painted pictures of pictures, Roy Lichtenstein replied that artists had, in a sense, always done so. The historical and actual power of the image is clear here, just as it is clear in Lichtenstein's iconic paintings, wherein he captured familiar objects with an exceptional graphic precision by way of the comic book. Whether he was representing a couch, a turkey, an artist's studio, or an emotional woman ("I don't care! I'd rather sink--than call Brad for help!"), Lichtenstein captured the essential clicha of the strong image. All About Art is all about Lichtenstein's lifelong fascination with and investigation of the image as image, a theme well borne out by the large group of pictures illustrated here in which different elements in the rhetoric of image formation are exposed: brushstrokes, stretchers, mirrors, graphic shorthand translations of other paintings, meticulous quotings of comic book imagery, flat iconic representations of commercial objects, etc. ZAP! BOOM! POW! to you. Accompanying texts include David Sylvester's last interview with Lichtenstein and an oral history of the artist, coordinated by Avis Berman.

Reviews - What do customers think about Roy Lichtenstein: All About Art?

A good exhibition catalogue  Jan 11, 2008
Not as complete as the catalogue for the 1994-1996 retrospective (supervised by Diane Waldman), this catalogue for the 2003 exhibition at the Louisiana Museum in Denmark, the Hayward Gallery in London and the Reina Sofia in Madrid is nevertheless the best recent publication on Lichtenstein, encompassing his entire career, through enlightening essays (especially the one dealing with Pop Art according to Lichtenstein) and, above all, magnificent illustrations of seminal works (the 1961 Popeye, the 1962 Masterpiece, the 1963 In the Car, all in private collections and rarely seen). If you can still find a copy, it is definitely worth the investment.
