We recently received a note from Judith Brodie, Curator at the National Gallery of Art, about the inclusion of Graphicstudio’s sculpture edition of Roy Lichtenstein’s Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman in the Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective exhibition. The work is on view in a room full of brushstroke paintings and is said to look ‘fantastic.’ We hope you’ll get a chance to see the work at the National Gallery of Art. She was kind enough to send us a snapshot of the chair in the gallery.
Excerpt from the National Gallery of Art site:
In the first major exhibition since Roy Lichtenstein’s death in 1997, more than 100 of the artist’s greatest paintings from all periods of his career will be presented along with a selection of related drawings and sculptures. This retrospective presents Lichtenstein’s expansive legacy, including the classic early pop paintings based on advertisements and comic-book treatments of war and romance, his versions of paintings by the modern masters, and series including Brushstrokes, Mirrors, Artist’s Studios, Nudes, and Landscapes in the Chinese Style. Over the course of his career, Lichtenstein’s work has been the subject of more than 240 solo exhibitions, the last full survey having been organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1993.
Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective will be on view at the National Gallery of Art from October 14, 2012–January 13, 2013. Find out more about the exhibition here
