Roy Lichtenstein Imperfect Print for B.A.M.

‘It seemed to be the most meaningless way to make an abstraction … the nameless or generic painting you might find in the background of a sitcom, the abstraction hanging over the couch’ (Roy Lichtenstein).

Challenging the traditional edge of the canvas, Lichtenstein here starts with a line, follows it along the canvas and then brings it back to the start. As the artist himself said of the print, ‘the line goes out beyond the rectangle of the painting, as though I missed the edge somehow’.

By re-appropriating the traditional artistic motif of landscape and rendering it in his Pop idiom, Lichtenstein demonstrated his extensive knowledge of the history of art and suggested the proximity of high and low art forms. His interest in modern art also led Lichtenstein to create many works that directly referenced artists such as Cézanne, Picasso, and Matisse.
