Roy Lichtenstein Reflections on Crash, from the Reflections Series, 1990 is rich with the dynamic narration and subtle mystery that Lichtenstein’s works are so famous for. We are presented with a dramatic scene, ruled by a bold action bubble containing the word CRASH. At the bottom left is the sharp-featured face of a pilot whose diagonal gaze leads to a plane at the right side of the piece. Bold slanted stripes of reflective material slice the composition and bring the viewer closer into the action of the work by taking on a reflection of whatever setting the work is in. Part of Lichtenstein’s Reflection Series, Crash explores the connection between commercial imagery, story telling, art, and the viewer.
Created in 1990, this lithograph, screenprint and relief in colors, with metalized PVC collage with embossing is hand signed by Roy Lichtenstein (New York, 1923 – New York, 1997) and dated (’90) in pencil in the lower right and inscribed “AP” (Artist Proof); aside from the numbered edition of 68.
