Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky

In 1964, inspired by both the long history of art and by imagery he found on contemporary printed postcards, Roy Lichtenstein began to explore the genre of land and seascapes, using paint, plastic, enamel, drawings, collage, print, and even film to realize his various works. Seascapes were an essential part of the artist’s lifelong exploration of psychological optics, light and his keen observations on the nature of field and ground. They were a genre he would revisit throughout his career in various media and guises. Comprised of over 30 works from private lenders and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, the exhibition will include works from the 1960s-1990s. A collaboration between Guild Hall and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky celebrates the artist’s abiding relationship with the East End of New York and all that it inspired.
