Roy Lichtenstein Sculpture, 1990 is a rare porcelain and painted bronze from the artist's extensive body of work. Composed of simple lines and graphic motifs in Lichenstein's signature style, this striking work translates the imagery of pop art into a miniature landscape. This is meant as a table centerpiece and deliberately recalls Calder's standing mobiles. At the center is a bright yellow circle which appears like the sun. Above it, a large striped rain cloud appears to float towards the bright sun, adding a sense of life and movement to an otherwise stagnant scene. Below, two additional white forms convey additional clouds. Below the image unfolding above is a singular green tree which stands atop the green grass. The grass in fact covers a large basin intended to be covered with flowers. This dynamic sculpture modernizes our conception of landscape. By using untraditional mediums and colors, Lichtenstein proves he can make the old new once more. Even more delightful, this sculpture can be viewed from any side or angle. It is as if the artist is gesturing to the viewers to interact more closely with his sculputre.
An exquisite piece from every angle, this stunning work by Lichenstein is best viewed in person. Filled movement and play, this sculpture is unlike any other. With its playful form and brilliant colors, this work is animated with a captivating presence. In gracefully simple shapes, and keen sense of wit, Landscape Mobile (Limoges) beautifully transforms the imagery of classic comic strips into a beautifully contemporary and dynamic visual experience.
Created in 1990, this porcelain sculpture with painted bronze bears the printed signature of Roy Lichtenstein (New York, 1923 - New York, 1997) on the base; numbered from the edition of 125, this rare work features the publisher's stamps: Bernardaud, Limoges and Artes Magnus Ltd., New York.
