The image of "Red Barn II, 1969" was used for the design of this exhibition poster held at the Museum Ludwig Koln in 1989. Approximately 5000 copies were printed. Red Barn II relates to two integral strands of importance in Lichtenstein's work -- high art and Pop Art. Red Barn II presents both a vision of an American isolationist utopia and the quintessentially American rural idylls painted by conservative American landscape artists. Yet it is painted in the customary Lichtenstein reductive cartoon style that adds an inevitable sense of mockery characteristic of his work.
