In the late 1960s, Roy Lichtenstein created a series of paintings and prints based off Claude Monet's 'Haystacks', exploring the play of light through different effects and techniques. Ranging in seven different scenes from morning to midnight, Lichtenstein puts a mechanical focus on his work, investigating Monet's light effects through a reproduced scene of variant palette combinations. This 'Haystacks' screenprint from 1969 is an edition of 70/250, and measures 19 x 26 inches. The is a minor stain in the lower left margin, the image is not affected, and is otherwise in excellent condition.
The work of American Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) reflected influences from popular advertising, culture, and the comic book. Lichtenstein often used cartoon images and techniques derived from the appearance of commercial printing in his works of painting, sculpture, and ceramics. The result were paintings featuring thick outlines, bold colors, and Benday Dots (a technique often used in comic books), as if created by photographic reproduction. Though Lichtenstein often included the use of advertising imagery and reproductions of comic-book panels, his work was never an attempt to copy images exactly. Instead, Lichtenstein’s work tackled the way in which mass media portrays different aspects of popular culture by taking common place images and transforming them into “high art.” In 1996 the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. became the largest single repository of the artist's work when he donated 154 prints and 2 books.
