NEW YORK – More than 200 lots will tantalize bidders at Doyle New York‘s April 20 Prints & Multiples sale. The catalog includes artworks ranging from the 17th century to the 21st, and from works on paper to ceramics. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
One of the most innovative and influential artists of the latter 20th century, Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997) put the “Bif!,” “Bam!,” and “Pow!” into pop art. His larger-than-life paintings of people in melodramatic situations were inspired by comic strips and newspaper ads, and Lichtenstein made sure they were presented just that way – with a screened effect that resembled an enlarged newspaper page.
