Historical Description

Roy Lichtenstein Reverie, 1965; Executed in yellow, red, blue and black, this work is composed of wonderful color dots that combine to create the image. Similar to the way newspaper images are printed, Roy Lichtenstein used solid outlines to frame the picture elements, and then filled them with these vibrant color dots. With the dots combined, Lichtenstein gives us a fabulous subject matter that to him represented an “incomplete narrative.” In this sense, we are witness to an intriguing scene with a beautiful blonde who is shown singing a rather sad song.

She has a melancholy expression, and because we are not given any other details into this mystery, we have an “incomplete narrative.”

From the visual construction to the artistic process, Lichtenstein provides us with a wealth of viewing enjoyment that engages our mind and our senses.

Created in 1965, this screenprint in colors is hand-signed by Roy Lichtenstein (New York, 1923 – New York, 1997) in pencil: ‘rf Lichtenstein’.  Numbered from the edition of 200, this work is published by Original Editions, New York.
