Roy Lichtenstein held a preeminent place among vanguard American artists for four decades. He proved to be among the most important and enduring of the Pop artists who emerged in the early 1960s. His major themes, usually used ironically, include art based on printed imagery such as comics and advertisements; art based on a wide variety of styles; and notions of hackneyed images in a set style. His formal language consistently involves black outlines, stripes, dots, brushstrokes, and schematic patterns. This edition includes:

Comprehensive Coverage: It provides a detailed and exhaustive inventory of all of Lichtenstein’s prints from 1948 to 1997. This includes not only his famous comic-strip style prints but also earlier works and lesser-known pieces.

Illustrations and Descriptions: The book contains high-quality reproductions of Lichtenstein’s prints, along with thorough descriptions. Each entry typically includes details such as the title, date, medium, dimensions, edition size, and other relevant information.

Scholarly Essays: The revised edition features insightful essays by experts on Lichtenstein’s work, discussing his impact on the art world, his techniques, and the themes he explored throughout his career.

Historical Context: It places Lichtenstein’s work within the broader context of art history and the Pop Art movement, providing readers with a deeper understanding of his influence and significance.

Updates and Revisions: This edition updates the previous version by including newly discovered works and correcting any inaccuracies from earlier editions. It reflects the latest scholarship and research on Lichtenstein.
