"The Last Portrait of Roy Lichtenstein by Ceravolo", 74x82x10 Oil & Aluminum

1998

About

This large 74"x82"x10" oil on canvas with aluminum panels is titled "The last portrait of Roy Lichtenstein by Ceravolo" Ceravolo was introduced to Lichtenstein at a museum show in 1995, at that show, Lichtenstein and Ceravolo discussed the fact that Andy Warhol had painted portraits of Roy in the 1970's and now that it was the 1990's it would be the perfect time for Ceravolo to create a new portrait of Roy in Ceravolo's unique style. They discussed the details and arrangements over the next two years, and in July 1997 Ceravolo photographed Roy Lichtenstein for this now famous painting consisting of an oil on canvas portrait with three dimensional aluminum panels. The use of Aluminum in primary colors is reminiscent of Roy's work and the 4 inch circles that are cut out of the Aluminum mimic Lichtenstein's famous dot patterns. Ceravolo's paintings first came to popular attention in the 1970's when he was commissioned to create six large portraits for the lobby of the Palladium Theatre in New York City. In addition to those, Ceravolo's work is in numerous collections including Elton John, Hugh M. Hefner, Rod Stewart, Warner Bros. and Schenley Industries to name only a few. This painting was a first for Ceravolo, using aluminum sculpture in conjunction with his oil on canvas painting and quite a unique item, in that it was created from Roy Lichtenstein's last portrait sitting with Ceravolo. It has been in Ceravolo's private collection since it was created and we are pleased to offer it on 1stdibs for purchase. We have included in this listing an image of Dorothy Lichtenstein with Ceravolo in front of the portrait so that you can see the scale of the portrait.
