Roy Lichtenstein: American Identity
“In America the biggest is the best.”
The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art opens their original exhibition, Roy Lichtenstein: American Identity, Sunday October 14th, 2012.
Roy Lichtenstein spent his career in a relationship with American popular culture. As a beginning artist, he turned his interest in the legends of the American West into painting of western subjects in modern art styles. His signature comic strip style paintings were first introduced to the art world in 1960. Lichtenstein’s technique, using large dots to simulate mass market printing in very large scale formats, led to a lifelong exploration of themes in American pop culture: romance, war, science fiction, patriotism, and consumerism.
This exhibit of twenty iconic Lichtenstein prints, some up to 7 feet wide, includes examples from his comic book themes, patriotic works, war themes, consumer themes, and includes a rarely viewed series of six, the American Indian theme lithographs.
