Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

Roy Lichtenstein rocketed to prominence in the 1960s with his Pop Art images taken from comic book panels. But he also had a fascination with traditional Chinese landscape, which began while he was a student at Ohio State University in the 1940s. This interest entered his imagery in the last three years of his career. Lichtenstein had collected books from several major exhibitions of Chinese art, and they were the direct source of inspiration for a series based on landscapes from the Song dynasty (AD 960 to 1279). In Landscape with Poet, Lichtenstein combines one of the important devices of his Pop Art images - the use of Ben-Day dots, derived from commercial screenprinting - with the classic motifs of Chinese painting, seen here in the artfully gnarled tree and the lone figure contemplating a stunning view of distant mountains. This overlay of dots adds an ironic note of modernity, contrasting with the fine art traditions of China, known for their exquisite use of brushwork.
