Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Showcasing "settings in which daily life and private acts can only be imagined," Roy Lichtenstein: Interiors presents (mostly previously unpublished) work from a 1999 exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art curated by museum director Robert Fitzpatrick and Dorothy Lichtenstein. The book features works from the artist's nudes series of the '90s and other work from the last decade. Continuing to borrow images and ideas from pop culture, Lichtenstein recast them in his inimitable, humorous, comic-strip style characterized by oversize pixels, flat light and primary colors. Also included are sketches, drawings, clippings from his scrapbook and photos of his sculptures. Essays by the two curators, the late Leo Castelli and others cover biography, reception and reminiscence.

From Library Journal

These two books explore the late work of two highly acclaimed artists. Completed in the 1990s during the final years of Lichtenstein's life, Interiors is the first trade edition of a 2001 title originally released in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. This body of colorful paintings and prints reflects the excess of the 1980s. Included in the large color reproductions are Lichtenstein's preliminary sketches and source materials, which add valuable insight to his working process. The 115 color plates are contextualized by short essays by five individuals who were closest to the artist, including his wife, and by a foreword by Robert Fitzpatrick (director, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago). These essays paint an extraordinary portrait of this major artist.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A companion to a 1999 exhibition held at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, this book focuses on a series that the artist painted in the 1990's, one of the last before his death in 1997, of interiors (living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms...), a series that obviously harks back to Richard Hamilton's landmark collage "Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?", a defining moment of Pop Art. The illustrations (all in color)and photographs of Lichtenstein's studio or source material (popular comics) are accompanied by short and lively texts, all written by authorities on Lichtenstein (his widow Dorothy, his late dealer Leo Castelli)and make this publication a valuable addition to the literature on the artist, even though this particular body of works may not be the most memorable in the artist's career.

First of all- a disclaimer: I am not related to the author.

This is an excellent and scholarly work, showcasing Lichtenstein's work later in his life.

The works are well reproduced, with interesting commentaries, as well as sketches, source materials and other illustrations.

Production of the book is of high quality, with an attractive cover- reproducing his "Nude with Yellow Flower" without any textual adornment. This quality makes the book an ideal gift.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a serious interest in Lichtenstein's work, particularly in his later work.

I was overwhelmed that some of Lichestein paintings sold for over $25 million. I liked his nude period of his development as the best

Format: Hardcover
Roy Lichtenstein is one of America's premier "pop art" painters and print makers. His style is instantly recognizable and powerfully influenced the popular culture of the last thirty years. Roy Lichtenstein: Interiors is an informative, wonderfully illustrated introduction and analysis of his "interior" paintings -- many published her for the first time. Robert Fitzpatrick is Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and effectively collaborates with Dorothy Lichtenstein, the late Leo Castelli, Sidney B. Felsen, and Cassandra Lozano to present an impressive and fully rounded presentation on the life, work, and artistic innovations of Lichtenstein. Roy Lichtenstein: Interiors is a very highly recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library American art history collections.

Format: Hardcover
Roy Lichtenstein has a distinctive pop art style which blends social commentary with caricatures: Interiors profiles many of his drawings of structures and space, with occasional people included in the sketches. Full-page color drawings accompany surveys of Lichtenstein's works and achievements.
