Roy Lichtenstein

Eight New Editions (in cooperation with Leo Castelli Gallery)
April 20, 1996May 24, 1996

Eight new editions by Roy Lichtenstein will be on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl from April 20 through May 24, 1996.

Lichtenstein's importance in contemporary art was solidly established in the 1960's with the emergence of Pop Art. His use of cartoon images, Benday dots, and bold line and color was shocking and exciting. Since that time, and as with the 8 new prints exhibited, Lichtenstein has expanded the use of his Pop Art imagery and pursued a continually new vocabulary, often developing details from previous works.

The new editions are an eclectic group of imagery, including two Venetian blinds, two landscapes, two music compositions, and two abstracted female images (which the artist refers to as "Modern Art").
