Roy Lichtenstein Apple and Lemon, 1983 is an excellent example of the artist’s later work. Lichtenstein largely abandoned his famous comic strip panel artwork for more abstracted works. This work features gestural loose brushstrokes suggesting a form of a red apple and yellow lemon. A far cry from Lichtenstein’s manufactural and precise comic strip works, this woodcut print shows the viewer more of Lichtenstein’s artistic hand and his experimentation with abstraction. The brushstrokes show the artist’s painterly hand and give the work a dynamic movement. Albeit simple in design and color choice, the print is striking and shows Lichtenstein’s skill in balancing a composition, and his interpretation of an abstracted still life.
Created in 1983, Roy Lichtenstein Apple and Lemon, 1983 is a woodcut on handmade Iwano Kizuki Hosho paper. This work is hand-signed by Roy Lichtenstein and dated and numbered from the edition of 60 in pencil in the lower right image.
