Biography: 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 jeweller 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 Christie's auction.

Provenance: Collection Robert William Burke, Paris Private Collection. Further Background: "Most Wanted Men No. 11, John Joseph H., Jr — is the artist’s haunting reminder of the dark underside of America during a time when, outwardly at least, the country was projecting a confident, forward-looking culture. Like any good detective story, the origins of Andy Warhol’s Most Wanted series involve a series of dramatic twists and turns. At the beginning of 1963, the architect Philip Johnson approached Andy Warhol, along with Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Peter Agostini, John Chamberlain, James Rosenquist, Robert Mallary, and Alexander Lieberman, to create a mural-sized work to adorn the outside of the Panoramic Cinema Theater, a centrepiece of the New York State Pavilion at the World’s Fair, which was to be held the following year. Warhol decided to reproduce, on a monumental scale, 13 mugshots of various criminals taken from a booklet entitled The Thirteen Most Wanted Men produced by the New York Police Department. Some of the mugshots were..., that the NYPD considered to be its most dangerous criminals. Warhol’s exact reasons for choosing this subject matter are unclear. According to John Giorno, a member of the artist’s inner circle, the idea came from the painter Wynn Chamberlain, whose lover at the time was an NYPD officer who, according to Giorno, ‘obtained’ a large envelope filled with various crime photos, mug shots and archival photographs which he passed on to Warhol. Of the mugshots that Warhol selected, the one of John Joseph Henehan Jr. is perhaps the most enigmatic... with his good looks and chiselled features, Henehan wouldn’t have looked out of place in one of the era’s teen heart-throb magazines. This outward appearance, however, hides a darker, violent character, evidenced by the description of Henehan’s crime in the original police booklet. On 28 February, 1959, Henehan Jr. and three accomplices walked into a liquor store in Queens, New York, and robbed the cashier at gunpoint. They took $350 from the register, $70 from the store owner and $450, a watch and a ring from an unlocked safe. Henehan was a familiar face to his local police precinct as three years previously, aged 19, he had been arrested in possession of a gun and given parole. Two years later he was arrested again, this time for the possession of a small amount of heroin and drug paraphernalia, but was later acquitted. Indicted for the Queens robbery of the liquor store by a grand jury, he absconded before the trial and was wanted by the F.B.I. on a charge of unlawful flight from custody. As such, the Thirteen Most Wanted Men series was controversial from the start. Later in 1964, Warhol made a series of nearly two dozen larger than life-size canvases featuring 13 of these ‘most wanted’ men, many of which were exhibited at the Sonnabend Gallery in Paris in 1967. Part of this important series, Most Wanted Men No. 11, John Joseph H., Jr. is one of only six subjects that Warhol made in two versions, with the other housed in the permanent collection of the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main. Despite its dark subject matter, Most Wanted Men No. 11, John Joseph H., Jr. also falls squarely within Andy Warhol’s Pop vernacular. Just as he did with his paintings of Liz Taylor, Campbell’s Soup cans and Coca-Cola bottles, Warhol seeks to embrace the entire range of Americana." (source: Christies) _ Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical reproduction, Pop Art king, Andy Warhol created some of the 20th century’s most iconic images. Warhol was widely influenced by popular & consumer culture, with this being evident in some of his most famous works: 32 Campbell's soup cans, Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe & Mick Jagger, for example. Rejecting the standard painting and sculpting modes of his era, Warhol embraced silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. The artist mentored Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat and continues to influence contemporary art around the world: His most bold successors include Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons. Warhol has been the subject of exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, and Centre Pompidou, among other institutions.

  • Some Los Angeles Apartments
    By Ed Ruscha
    Located in New York, NY
    Ed Ruscha Some Los Angeles Apartments (Unsigned), 1965 True First Edition Artist Book: Stated Limited Edition of only 700 7 × 5 1/2 inches Unframed A rare and elusive 1960s Artist Book. Makes a terrific gift. This is a TRUE 1965 1st Edition of only 700 stated copies. (NOT to be confused with the second edition in 1970 which was published in a much larger edition of 3000 and NOT to be confused with an eponymous 1990 Whitney Museum publication.) A must have for Ruscha Fans. SOME LOS ANGELES APARTMENTS. Los Angeles: Self-Published, 1965. True First Edition Printed Wrappers with Glassine. Original Artist's Book. This marvelous vintage 1965 48 page book features 34 black and white illustrations and is in surprisingly fine condition. "Some Los Angeles Apartments" is Ed Ruscha's third artist book - a wry yet heartfelt photographic survey of the subtle beauty of the post-war Southern California rental property construction boom. A spectacularly bright, most handsome example of the uncommon 1965 first edition (entry B3 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 105 of "From Fair to Fine 2", and page 226 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to seven hundred unnumbered copies. This is an exceptional example of this important little gem that is often confused with the 1990 Whitney Museum exhibition catalogue of virtually the same title. "In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist’s book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d’artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. Some Los Angeles Apartments, with its straightforward presentation of modern California domestic buildings, celebrated the vernacular architecture of Southern California." The Getty Museum "....It's perhaps fitting that Ed Ruscha - one of the central figures in late 20th century photography - does not consider himself a photographer. "I think photography is dead as a fine art," he told John Coplans...
