A reprint of the original 1968 catalogue accompanying the first comprehensive exhibition of Roy Lichtenstein's work in the United Kingdom, complete with interviews of Lichtenstein in 1963 and 1967, essay by Richard Morphet, comprehensive illus. plates, an outline of the chronology of Lichtenstein's imagery, biographical notes and contemporary interviews and works mentioned.
A publication arranged shortly after the early years of the pop art movement, Lichtenstein's incursion of harsh colors and coarse lines of commercial art had already revolutionized the world of painting, proving that the seeming artifice of "pop" art was capable of far reaching complexity. The catalogue features Lichtenstein's well known works derived from advertising and comic book imagery, but also include several later series: the giant brushstrokes, the classical ruins, the land/sea/skyscapes among others.
