Water Lily Pond with Reflections

About this artwork

This is from a group of six works that form Lichtenstein’s 'Water Lilies' series which pay homage to the water lily paintings of Impressionist artist Claude Monet. Lichtenstein first referenced Monet’s work in 1969, with prints based on the French artist’s 'Cathedral' and 'Haystack' paintings. As well as appropriating Monet’s imagery, Lichtenstein used Monet’s method of working in series, creating multiple works on the same subject. In this and Lichtenstein’s other reworkings of Monet’s water lily paintings, areas of the stainless steel have been polished to convey the reflective quality of water. Lichtenstein had a long-standing fascination with reflections which he explored as a motif in many other prints and paintings.
