Price: Not Available
Description: New York: Gagosian Gallery, 2010. 32cm., hardcover, 226pp. prof. illus., most in color. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: This catalogue, published in conjunction with "Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes," is the first exhibition devoted solely to Lichtenstein's still life paintings, sculptures and drawings, which span from 1972 through the early 1980s. The exhibition and catalogue bring together more than fifty Still Life paintings and sculptures from prominent private collections and museums worldwide, including a selection of rarely seen Still Life drawings, many of which are precise sketches for the paintings and sculptures. These Still Lifes cover a variety of motifs and themes, ranging from traditional subjects such as fruit, flowers, and vases, to contemporary vernacular subjects, including the artist's intentionally banal Office Still Lifes and the contents of his own studio. Subjects and movements are stripped of their original import and gravitas and recognizably reflect Lichtenstein's signature "cartoonish" method of painting.
