75 museum quality original posters, including 8 rare posters designed by museums for Lichtenstein exhibitions. Plus approximately 15 additional items / exhibits – rare collectables, magazines, catalogues, postcards etc. for exhibit in display cases. Considered to be one of the largest and most comprehensive collections in the world.
The art of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) offers a prime example for the constant change of taste. The early rejection was soon replaced by curiosity and admiration, and today he is one of the most popular and sought-after artists.
More than seventy posters, published in more than 35 years, offer a survey of his art, from the early comic-strip scenes to the landscapes of his later years.
Artists’ posters are created by artists and not by designers. They demonstrate an individual style and regards artistic expression as more important than quick legibility.
Because this medium permits them to reach a wider public beyond the circle of their collectors and admirers, artists often select attractive and typical examples of their art for their posters.
