    About This Piece

    Embark on a journey through the artistic brilliance of Roy Lichtenstein with ‘The Impossible Collection: Roy Lichtenstein’ book by Avis Berman. A maestro of pop art, Lichtenstein was a leading figure in the 1960s art movement, reshaping the landscape with his innovative approach.

    Born on October 27, 1923, Lichtenstein’s artistic journey began early, showcasing his talent in drawing, painting, and sculpture as a teenager. Inspired by the comic strip, he became a trailblazer, defining pop art through parody. His iconic works like ‘Whaam!’ and ‘Drowning Girl’ became cornerstones of the movement, blending precise compositions with a tongue-in-cheek manner.

    The ‘Impossible Collection’ pays homage to Lichtenstein’s profound impact on art history. The book, meticulously handmade and originally published in 2019, meticulously curates 100 of his most influential pieces. Beyond his renowned works, it delves into his artistic philosophy, rooted in imitation and paraphrasing despised images.

    This limited-edition book, measuring 16.5 x 20 inches, is a collector’s delight, housed in a luxurious linen clamshell case. Authenticated with a BHP Collectibles COA, it ensures the genuineness of this extraordinary piece.

    Lichtenstein’s focus and energy fuelled an oeuvre of over 5,000 paintings, prints, sculptures, and more. ‘The Impossible Collection’ captures the evolution of his artistry, from borrowing images from comics to encompassing everyday objects and art history itself.

    With complimentary postage and packaging in the UK, this book is not just a celebration of Lichtenstein’s legacy; it’s an immersive experience in the mind of an artistic visionary.
