The Watson Gordon Lecture 2010: ‘The Hardest Kind of Archetype’: Reflections on Roy Lichtenstein (hardback)
Hardback book to accompany The Watson Gordon Lecture 2010: ‘The Hardest Kind of Archetype’: Reflections on Roy Lichtenstein. This wide-ranging lecture on Roy Lichtenstein is a gripping engagement with the multiple aspects of the artist’s work: the conjunctions of art and technology, the satirical playing with previous modernist styles, and the sinister background of the military-industrial complex. The book illustrates a range of works from throughout the artist’s career.
Series: The Watson Gordon Lecture Series: The Watson Gordon Lectures, established in 2006, typify the long-standing collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and the National Galleries of Scotland: two partners in the Visual Arts Research Institute in Edinburgh.
Each lecture is by a leading scholar and reveals new research on a focused topic. The lectures are delivered and published annually, and now number five titles in the series.
About the author: Hal Foster is Townsend Martin ’17 Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. He is an acknowledged world expert on modernist art and architecture, and has a particular fascination with Pop art.
