About this item
This beautiful book chronicles the creation of the original 1983 Greene Street Mural by Roy Lichtenstein at Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, as well as Gagosian Gallery’s recent 2015 iteration, which introduced a new generation of viewers to this magnificent project. In Greene Street Mural, Roy Lichtenstein layered pervasive images from his pop lexicon—marble-patterned composition notebooks, cartoonish brushstrokes, and Swiss cheese—with motifs, including the Neo-Geo tropes of his Perfect/Imperfect paintings; faux woodblock shading patterns; and office items, including filing cabinets, envelopes, and folding chairs. Using stunning color photographs, interviews, and essays, this new book presents Lichtenstein’s almost 100-foot-long mural, which epitomized the artist’s ability to absorb anything and everything that caught his eye into his constantly evolving artistic idiom."
