About This Book
An exceptional selection of Lichtenstein’s sculptures from 1968 to the end of the artist’s life, from early ceramic sculptures to large-scale public works. The planned exhibition at the Fondazione Vedova in Venice (Biennale Arte 2013) will encompass Roy Lichtenstein’s sculptural production throughout his career, from the early 1960s through the late 1990s, covering the influential artist’s sculptural œuvre in ceramic, bronze, wood, porcelain, steel, and aluminum, as well as drawings, collages, and maquettes that describe the artist’s working processes. This catalog—a major chronology of Lichtenstein’s sculptures—not only documents the process of the artist, from sketches and drawings to collages, maquettes, metal sculptures, and large-scale interventions in urban contexts, it also approaches Lichtenstein’s work from the perspective of fabrication methods and industrial techniques.
