Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein mined advertisements and comics to make groundbreaking paintings that brought American pop culture into the gallery space. He undermined the distinction between painting and printing as he made canvases that looked as though they'd come from a commercial press; using paint and stencils, he meticulously rendered flat, single-color benday dots by hand. Lichtenstein introduced his detached and deadpan style in 1961 when he painted Look Mickey, a picture of the cartoon mouse executed in primary colors. Five years later, he represented the United States at the Venice Biennale. By the 1970s, he'd already enjoyed major shows at the Pasadena Art Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Guggenheim. Lichtenstein's work has sold for more than $90 million at auction. His use of appropriated imagery has influenced artists such as Richard Prince, Jeff Koons, and Raymond Pettibon.

  • Helmut Newton, 1994, Poster, Exhibition at the Castello di Rivoli
    By Helmut Newton
    Located in Milano, IT
    Helmut Newton poster 60 x 79.5 cm printed on the occasion of the Exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Castello di Rivoli from September 24 to November 20, 1994 in excellent condition. The photo in question is a shot taken by the author in Paris in 1978 for Vogue France. The Poster has some light moisture marks readable only on the back. Helmut Newton (tedesco, 1920-2004) è considerato uno dei grandi maestri della fotografia del tardo Novecento, il cui stile fotografico è ancora visto come provocatorio e ampiamente capace di sfidare la comprensione del desiderio e della sessualità femminile. Nato a Berlino da una famiglia ebrea, dopo essere stato apprendista di Yva, lasciò il Paese nel 1938. Dopo essere stato a Singapore e in Australia, dove conobbe la moglie e compagna di una vita June, tornò in Europa solo negli anni Sessanta, dove nel 1961 iniziò una fortunata carriera di fotografo di moda a Parigi. Come fotografo di moda, ha collaborato con importanti riviste come French Vogue, Harper Bazaar, Playboy, Elle Queen, GQ, Marie-Claire. Nel corso della sua carriera ha lavorato per Chanel, Gianni Versace, Yves Saint Laurent e ha fotografato molte personalità dello spettacolo, della cultura, della politica e del cinema come Ava Gardner, Charlotte Rampling, Catherine Deneuve, Romy Schneider , Raquel Welch, Sigourney Weaver, Margaret Thatcher, Helmut Kohl, Jean-Marie Le Pen, Rainer Werner Fassbinder e Wim Wenders. Definito il "Re del Kink" dal Time Magazine, ha pubblicato diversi libri del suo lavoro come White Women (1976), Big Nudes (1981) e World Without Men (1984): grazie al contributo della moglie June, ha spinto oltre i confini della sua visione, in cui il nudo femminile...

  • Erotellica, 1974, Lithograph, Pop, Nouveau Realisme
    By Mimmo Rotella
    Located in Milano, IT
    From a series of pop lithographs by Mimmo Rotella, published by Plura Edizioni, Italy, dating back to the early 1970s. Signed and numbered in pencil on the front. Edition 60/80 copies. Opera Proveniente da collezione privata, Italia. The piece is accompanied by a certificate of provenance issued by the gallery. Le condizioni dell'opera sono per lo più perfette: nessuna traccia del tempo, nessun graffio e margini perfettamente conservati. Il pezzo viaggia senza cornice per avere una spedizione più economica e sicura su richiesta dell'acquirente. Poiché il pezzo viaggia dall'Italia, si prega di considerare che l'espletamento delle pratiche di esportazione richiede un minimo di una settimana dal momento dell'acquisto. Mimmo Rotella, che ha rappresentato l'Italia alla Biennale di Venezia del 1964, è stato sperimentale fino in fondo: nelle sue poesie, nei suoi dipinti, nelle sue fotografie, nei suoi assemblaggi scultorei e nei suoi collage ha abbattuto le convenzioni, lasciando dietro di sé un corpus di opere stravaganti. All'inizio degli anni Cinquanta dipinge astrazioni geometriche, poi si allontana dal suo studio e si rivolge al mondo che lo circonda. Lì trovò i manifesti pubblicitari e cinematografici deteriorati, che strappò dalle pareti, attaccò alle tele e strappò ulteriormente per sviluppare composizioni semi-astratte dalle immagini dei mass media, che chiamò "doppi décollages". Grazie ai suoi collage, è stato associato a Raymond Hains, Jacques Villeglé e François Dufrêne...
