Roy Lichtenstein (American, b. 1923) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement of the 1960s. Following a three-year stint in the army, Lichtenstein completed his degree at Ohio State University. While there, he met Hoyt L. Sherman, his professor and mentor who has been credited with influencing Lichtenstein's future work. Shifting between cubism and expressionism, Lichtenstein's oeuvre is characteristically marked by a highly stylized, comic book-like drawing, bright colors and very precise, graphic, compositions.
This beautiful screenprint by Roy Lichtenstein 'Still Life with Windmill' is from his Six Still Lifes series. Lichtenstein had been making Still lifes for quite some time at this point in his career, such as the very popular Pop image 'Sandwich and Soda.' Lichtenstein approached this series very differently, as it marked the first time he deliberately explored them still lifes as a subject. One of six prints from the series, the Still Life with Windmill is particularly interesting as it has a wider scope, and includes both an indoor and outdoor scene, rather than a traditional close-up still life.
The work is from an edition of only 100 and is sold unframed. Further images and a condition report are available on request.
