Roy Lichtenstein "The Black and White Drawings, 1961-1968" Exhibition
Roy Lichtenstein’s work work will always speak volume’s and having been the subject of even greater talk in 2010 here is a new selection of defining works for an era that hugely influenced pop art. The collection of works at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York highlights Lichtenstein’s pop art beginnings with 55 large-scale, black-and-white drawings dating from 1961 to 1968. On showcase for the first time, these drawings give some insight on how Lichtenstein developed his style of using Benday dots to simulate commercial reproduction, and his subject matter of appropriated comic strips and advertisements. The exhibition will now move to The Albertina in Vienna, Austria and will open on January 27 making it a must see if in the area.
