The Drawings of Roy Lichtenstein
by Bernice Rose
Publisher's Description
Roy Lichtenstein makes small, precise preliminary studies for his large paintings and sculpture, eventually projecting them onto the canvas when he begins to paint. Abrams has collected some of the most interesting of these drawings, along with collage maquettes for sculptures and prints and his studies for murals; all of them show the familiar vigour of his graphic style. "The drawings in this book are at the core of his style: they reveal the rationale of his choice of `clichéd' subject matter and the subtle irony of his hand-imitation of cartoon style and commercial reproduction processes."--the publisher. A liberal retrospect of work ranging from the sixties to the present.
