About

A vintage offset-lithograph exhibition poster after American artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) titled "Roy Lichtenstein: The Metropolitan Museum of Art", 1986. Produced for a special exhibit of contemporary art within the department of 20th century art at the MET in New York. Published by The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and printed in Switzerland in 1986. The poster features Lichtenstein's 1978 87" x 70" oil and magna on canvas painting "Stepping Out" which is part of the MET's permanent collection. Image copyright © Estate of Roy Lichtenstein. Recently framed in a contemporary black moulding. Sheet size: 33.5" x 23.5". Framed size: 35.75" x 26". The poster does have condition issues. It is dry-mounted to acid-free foam board. It has suffered some water damage at bottom quarter margin. (Please see pictures). Fair condition. Rare. Note: Not to be confused with thousands of inkjet reproductions on the market, the works we offer here are the original vintage exhibition posters, hand-made by or under the supervision of the artist for various exhibitions they participated in and fully documented in the artist's catalogue raisonne of authentic original posters. American artist Roy Lichtenstein was born in New York City on October 27, 1923, and grew up on Manhattan's Upper West Side. In the 1960s, Lichtenstein became a leading figure of the new Pop Art movement. Inspired by advertisements and comic strips, Lichtenstein's bright, graphic works parodied American popular culture and the art world itself. He died in New York City on September 29, 1997. Lichtenstein was committed to his art until the end of his life, often spending at least 10 hours a day in his studio. His work was acquired by major museum collections around the world, and he received numerous honorary degrees and awards, including the National Medal of Arts in 1995. In 2013 the painting "Woman with Flowered Hat" set another record at $56.1 million as it was purchased by British jeweler Laurence Graff from American investor Ronald O. Perelman. This was topped in November of 2015 by the sale of "Nurse" for 95.4 million dollars at a Christie's auction.
