Lichtenstein Posters, is a beautifully produced book, which is essential reading for anyone interested in Pop Art and the works of Roy Lichtenstein. In all, Lichtenstein designed 70 posters, which gives an insight into one of the 20th century’s greatest artists, and innovators of one of the most powerful artistic movements.
The posters included in this collection trace his artistic development from the 1960s to the 1990s. Lichtenstein placed great emphasis on America’s consumerist society. He transcended American culture and brought new ideas to light. His work captured the essence of a fragmented society increasingly becoming more and more self-conscious.
Written by Jürgen Döring, this book is a must for learning about Lichtenstein’s work and his life. It also provides an opportunity to view the posters together side by side, as well as an in depth biography of the artist. Döring is Head of Department at Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, which brings a fresh critical approach to Lichtenstein’s life and works.
