Description: Hand signed, dated and numbered by the artist. Artwork is in excellent condition. Certificate of Authenticity included. Lichtenstein began exploring Expressionism in painting in 1979. The Lichtenstein Catalog Raisonne 1948 -1992 quotes Jack Cowart, the head of the Lichtenstein Foundation, stating, "Lichtenstein used dots sparingly in these compositions, because their effect is not expressionist. The same is true of the prints, where no dots are used at all. The prints and the paints share some of the same subject's, but the compositions are not the same." Work on the print series began during the winter of 1980. It was Gemini G.E.L.'s first major wood-cut project. Baltic birch was chosen for its hardness, and Lichtenstein cut the block across the grain to minimize the printed texture. Lichtenstein hand cut all of the lines, and the Gemini staff cleared broad areas of the blocks. The paper used is heavier than the traditional Oriental papers usually used for woodcuts. The heavy paper, along with the large scale of the prints, necessitated the use of a lithography press to achieve the proper even pressure. The Paper was embossed after printing, to restore texture that was pressed out during the printing process.
