Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) is known for his association with the American pop art movement of the 1960s and for his use of the comic strip as inspiration for his large-scale paintings. Döring, curator of the 2008 exhibition at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, on which this book is based, here presents the most complete catalog of Lichtenstein's posters, including reproductions and background information on posters and flyers that advertise the artist's exhibitions, as well as posters designed by Lichtenstein to promote various social and political causes. In the introductory essay, Döring reviews Lichtenstein's use of poster design throughout his career. He also gives information about Lichtenstein's association with other artists and New York gallery owner Leo Castelli. Printed with parallel English and German texts, the book includes full- and half-page color reproductions of more than 50 posters as well as a complete catalog of 131 works, with smaller reproductions. A concise, biographical overview of Lichtenstein is also included. VERDICT Thoroughly researched and documented, this colorful book is most suitable for college-level students and researchers of art history.—Eric Linderman, Euclid P.L., OH
