Between the years 1982 to 1985, Lichtenstein created a series of paintings which took on “paintings” as their subject. This work is a continuation of that project except using the concept of a woodcut and lithograph. Painterly brush strokes of pale gray and yellow surround defined, dark stripes. The border is comprised of a vibrant yellow and black pattern. Eye catching and balanced, this work achieves a seamless balance between pastel and bright colors. Lichtenstein demonstrates his mastery of two wide-ranging mediums.
