The first monograph on the colorful 1980s work of the pop art pioneer
Presenting key works from the 1980s by the iconic pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923–97), Roy Lichtenstein: The Loaded Brushincludes full-spread installation views alongside an essay by the German art historian Siegfried Gohr that focuses on a period of great formal innovation both in painting and sculpture which centers on the motif of the brushstroke. Lichtenstein explains: "It [the brushstroke] was the way of portraying this romantic and bravura symbol in its opposite style, classicism. The Brushstroke plays a big part in the history of art. Brushstroke almost means painting or art.
Lichtenstein’s fascination with the brushstroke throughout art history is explored in sections covering his work in collage, drawing, painting and sculpture. This publication also features rare archival material, including images of the artist working in his studio.
