Description

Roy Lichtenstein’s signature style rests on transference of Ben-Day patterning, a technique used in printmaking, into a fine-art form of painting. Known for reproducing commercially printed imagery, Lichtenstein aimed to emphasize pictorial clichés by reducing the color palette to saturated primaries, heightening their contrast, and emphasizing shapes with bold brushstrokes. “Guild Hall East Hampton” is a silkscreen reproduction of Lichtenstein's 1974 oil painting from his “Landscape” series, which served as a significant component in his study of history of art through painting and printmaking while embarking on a variety of genres.

About Roy Lichtenstein

View Profile »

Roy Lichtenstein (American, b. 1923) was a leading figure in the Pop art movement of the 1960s. Following a three-year stint in the army, Lichtenstein completed his degree at Ohio State University. While there, he met Hoyt L. Sherman, his professor and mentor who has been credited with influencing Lichtenstein’s future work. Shifting between cubism and expressionism, Lichtenstein’s oeuvre is characteristically marked by a highly stylized, comic book-like drawing, bright colors and very precise, graphic, compositions. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Ohio State University in 1949.
