Musical notes and colors meld and dance together in this vibrant work. True to Lichtenstein’s pop art aesthetic, radiant colors, lines and grids are in geometric harmony. More impressive is Lichtenstein’s ability to transform this work on paper into a multisensory experience. Looking closely, we not only appreciate its visual beauty but also experience its musical quality. It is all too easy to imagine the music notes dancing on paper could also be the same music notes springing to life from swift piano keys. These qualities ensure this dynamic piece will be enjoyed by music and art lovers alike.
