Roy Lichtenstein’s comic strip–inspired paintings and irreverent wit have resonated with art collectors and enthusiasts for over half a century. Museums and galleries compete to exhibit his work, and in the market, he is one of the most coveted names in contemporary art. Celebrated for imbuing ordinary objects from hot dogs to trash cans with monumental power, Lichtenstein defied traditional “good taste” and became part of the new avant-garde that redefined American art in the 1960s. In this Assouline Ultimate Collection volume, one hundred of Lichtenstein’s most memorable works, as chosen by art historian Avis Berman, are lavishly reproduced, from the iconic Whaam! and Drowning Girl and later reinterpretations of paintings by Picasso, Matisse, and van Gogh to public commissions like Times Square Mural, which is installed in New York City’s Times Square subway station. Including stunning gatefolds that reveal the breadth of Lichtenstein’s art in all its color and beauty, this book is a dream collection for Pop Art lovers the world over.
