Roy Lichtenstein at “Magazzini del Sale”

Roy LichtensteinThe “Magazzini del Sale” (Fondazione Vedova site), will host the exhibition dedicated to Roy Lichtenstein, opened until Nov. 23rd 2013
The exhibition will display 45 works amongst them sculptures, drawings, collages and models. This is the first time that Italy hosts such amount of works from this American Pop Art genius!
The exhibition is focused on the Artist’s sculptures. That’s one of the reasons why this show is so important, as you know very well that this Artist is known more for its paintings than everything else. The masterpieces come from “The Roy Lichtenstein Foundation”,  “The Roy Lichtenstein Estate of New York” and from various Museums and private collections.

Peculiarities of Roy Lichenstein sculptures are their bi-dimensionality, the flatten of volumes, and the subjects, inspired by mass media’s images and, especially, by comics.
Beginning from a bi-dimensional object the Artist develops his work into a third dimension.

Very interesting are also his “profile” sculptures, realized between 1976 and 1997 (the year of his death), marked out by the flatten of depth and the shadow of the subject.
