Historical Description

Roy Lichtenstein Modern Head #4, 1970, C.94 is a beautiful abstract portrait of a face, done in a pale blue, black, and silver. The design is bold and dynamic, with thick lines and sharp angles.  Lichtenstein uses the comic book style shading, "Ben Day dots," to add dimension and contrast to the composition. This lithograph on aluminum is part of Lichtenstein's Modern Head series, one of several prints of abstracted portraits of faces. The print has an Art Deco feel to it, as well as influences from Pablo Picasso's Cubism movement. Lichtenstein has used geometric shapes like circles, triangles, and rectangles to deconstruct the face of the figure. The medium of printing on aluminum adds an additional visual interest to the lithograph.
