Roy Lichtenstein

Apple with Grey Background

About this artwork

Lichtenstein, one of the leading figures of Pop Art, was ever aware of the manufacturing process involved in printmaking and painting, and famously imitated the Ben-day dots found in commercial reproductions. He was not only Pop’s greatest stylist but also one of the most accomplished printmakers of all time, working in nearly every print medium and collaborating with many of the master printers and workshops of his time. This is a woodcut print, part of his ‘Seven Apple Woodcuts’ Series, published by Petersburg Press, New York and London.
