From the Collection: Lichtenstein Posters

Lichtenstein based his iconic images on comic strips and advertising imagery. They’re instantly discernible with his signature hand-painted dots and color combinations of brilliant red, yellow, and blue hues outlined in black. The following exhibition posters from the Mead’s collection were most-likely manufactured by a poster gallery, rather than by the artist himself.

“My work is actually different from comic strips in that every mark is really in a different place, however slight the difference seems to some. The difference is often not great, but it is crucial. People also consider my work to be anti-art in the same way they consider it pure depiction, ‘not transformed.’ I don’t feel it is anti-art.” –Lichtenstein, Interviews by G. R. Swenson
