Summary:
This publication exhaustively illustrates the sculptures Lichtenstein created between 1968 and 1997, the year of his death. From his first ceramic works down to large-scale public ones, the volume seeks to trace the artistic process leading from draughts and drawings to collages, maquettes, metal sculptures and large-scale urban installations. It also seeks to explore Lichtenstein's work on industrial manufacturing methods and techniques, by providing important information about the workshops the artist collaborated with during his career. The book is intended to offer a comprehensive overview of the artist's experimental use of methods of industrial production, along with a selection of interviews and texts on his two-dimensional sculptures.
