"The most iconic works of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) are widely known, reproduced, copied, and even parodied. However, the true diversity and complexity of his oeuvre is little understood, and the full scope of his career is largely absent from the existing literature. Presenting over 130 paintings and sculptures, as well as over thirty seldom- or never-before-seen drawings and collages, this book examines all periods in Lichtenstein's career, going well beyond his brushstrokes and the classic Pop romance and war cartoon paintings that made him famous.Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective features exciting new scholarship by an international team of distinguished curators, critics, and art historians. Essays by Yve-Alain Bois, Chrissie Iles, and Stephen Little, among others, give special consideration to Lichtenstein's historical influences, from Picasso and Cubism through Surrealism, Futurism, and British Pop. Contributions by James Rondeau and Sheena Wagstaff evaluate the artist's abstract work and late nudes. Complemented by photographs of the artist and his seminal exhibitions, the essays examine the various styles and subjects featured in paintings created throughout his lifetime. The inclusion of a complete chronology of Lichtenstein's life and work--compiled by Clare Bell of the Lichtenstein Foundation--makes this retrospective the most authoritative publication on the artist since his death in 1997"--

The prints of Roy Lichtenstein : a catalogue raisonné, 1948-1993 by Mary Lee Corlett ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lichtenstein, who devoted himself seriously to printmaking earlier than any other major artist of his generation (he made his first two prints in 1948 - a lithograph and a woodcut - and by 1950 had added etching and screenprint to his repertoire), is widely acknowledged as one of the most important printmakers of our time. Printmaking often provides him with an arena in which he is at his most experimental, apt to try something new, especially with materials. The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein catalogues and reproduces each of the artist's prints, as well as original posters, book and magazine illustrations, announcements, etc., 350 in all. Every work that is color in the original is reproduced in color. The volume's reference value is enhanced by a Chronology, Exhibition History, Bibliography, Concordances, and Index

Roy Lichtenstein in his studio by Laurie Lambrecht ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A portfolio of vivid and engaging photographs by Laurie Lambrecht, who was an administrative assistant to Lichtenstein for three years. She and the artist worked together daily, and the bond between them is evident in the photographs. Lichtenstein is shown working on two major series, Reflections and The Interiors. He is completely absorbed, oblivious to the camera, as he mounts ladders, assembles colors, composes, and steps back to consider the effect. During this period Lambrecht assisted in gathering material for a major retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. As a result, the photographs include scrapbooks and sketchbooks and other archival material that document Lichtenstein's entire career. There are stencils of Ben-Day dots, clippings from newspapers and comic books, Polaroid snapshots, rolls of tape, and boxes of colored pencils. Lichtenstein encouraged Lambrecht to make photographs and was often pleased and amused by the results. These images offer fascinating insight into Lichtenstein's working processes and source materials, as well as being vibrant works of art in their own right"--Jacket
Roy Lichtenstein : the black-and-white drawings 1961-1968 by Isabelle Dervaux ( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Between 1961 and 1968, Roy Lichtenstein (1923{u2013}1997) created some fifty large-format, highly detailed black-and-white drawings that represent one of the most important Pop-Art contributions to the history of drawing. The motifs stem from the consumer world and were radically new at the time, not only in their imagery but also their style, deliberately reminiscent of substandard commercial art. These independent drawings appropriate tawdry illustrations from packaging, advertisements, and comic books and transform them into works of striking visual intensity, tying in to the clean-edge aesthetic of geometric abstraction in the sixties. This richly illustrated publication provides a new basis for research on Lichtenstein{u2019}s early Pop Art years and includes material on the largely unknown 1967 Aspen project, in which the artist transformed a space into a black-and-white cartoon drawing. Exhibition schedule: The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, September 24, 2010{u2013}January 2, 2011
