Roy Lichtenstein opens his first show solely dedicated to his still life paintings, sculptures and drawings, which span from 1972 to the early 80′s at Gagosian Gallery on May 8th 2010, entitled ‘Still Lifes’. Lichtenstein’s Still Lifes cover a variety of motifs and themes, including the most traditional such as fruit, flowers, and vases. He also created still lifes from contemporary vernacular subjects, including the intentionally banal Office Still Lifes, as well as from the contents of his own studio.
This exhibition brings together more than fifty Still Lifepaintings and sculptures from prominent private collections and museums worldwide, and it includes a selection of rarely seen Still Life drawings, many of which are precise sketches for the paintings and sculptures.
The exhibition ‘Still Lifes’ runs through until July 30th 2010.
