  8. Lichtenstein’s Brushstroke

    Roy Lichtenstein’s very first screen print, "Brushstroke," was printed by Chiron Press in 1965. At the time, Lichtenstein was working on a series of brushstroke paintings as a satirical response to the emotion-laden gestural paintings of the dominant Abstract Expressionism artist group.

  9. Sweet Dreams

    "Sweet Dreams Baby!" is considered by many to be Roy Lichtenstein’s most important early Pop print, and the artist himself called it his first “true” Pop print. With its dynamic, cartoon imagery, the artist created something that appears to be machine-made and mass-produced — In fact, Lichtenstein labored intensely to create that illusion - each Benday dot is meticulously hand drawn!

  10. Time for Pop

    We’re very excited to debut our highly anticipated Fall Pop Prints Sale, featuring 60 classic Pop works by legends such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Tom Wesselmann. This dazzling, curated selection of iconic Pop prints is perfect for both new and seasoned Pop Art collectors.

    Among the sale’s highlights are two stunning prints from Andy Warhol’s 1983 Endangered Species series, which the artist once described as “animals in makeup.” Another highlight of the sale (and a MUST for fashionistas) is Andy Warhol’s rare Shoes (Deluxe Edition) (1980).

    In celebration of Robert Indiana’s retrospective which opened at the Whitney Museum this week, we’re thrilled to offer the largest graphic work ever created by the 85 year old Pop artist, The Book of Love (1996).

  11. Pop Art Atelier

    From 1963 to 1968, Chiron Press was the ground-zero of the fledgling Pop Art scene. Founded in a tiny storefront on 614 East 11th Street, it was the first print atelier in New York City devoted to screen printing for artists. Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg were just a handful of the artists who made silkscreen prints at Chiron.

    We took a look back at the highly influential Pop Art screen printing atelier and its founder Steve Poleskie.

  12. Madoff’s Art

    Sotheby’s is auctioning Bernie Medoff’s art collection this Fall, it has just been revealed. Madoff, who orchestrated a Ponzi scheme believed to be the largest financial fraud in US history, is now giving financial advice in his North Carolina prison. 

    “It’s a fairly lackluster group,” a New York-based art appraiser told Bloomberg, If you think about the amount of money this man had, he could have been buying fabulous paintings.” 

    Among the items to hit the block are a 1947 Pablo Picasso lithograph, a set of lithographs by Roy Lichtenstein and a small 1952 crayon drawing by Henri Matisse

  15. Lichtenstein Retrospective

    “The one thing everyone hated was commercial art; apparently they didn’t hate that enough, either.” -Roy Lichtenstein

    New York-born artist Roy Lichtenstein was motivated to create works that no one would want to hang on their walls. However, a solo show of such works at Leo Castelli Gallery in 1962 garnered him critical acclaim and notoriety in the art world. 

    Most of his best-known images come from this period in the mid-1960s, including his comic book pictures. However, surprisingly, there aren’t that many of them; these works fill only one room at the new Lichtenstein retrospective at London’s Tate Modern. 

    Lichtenstein also tried to apply his comic book style to all kinds of art that weren’t Pop at all. This included his own versions of works by predecessors such as Monet and Picasso, and of themes including the nude, classical Chinese painting, and geometrical abstraction.

    Lichtenstein: A Retrospective is on view at Tate Modern, in Bankside, London, from February 21 to May 27.
