Roy Lichtenstein sculptures - with video
Roy Fox Lichtenstein (New York, October 27, 1923 - New York, September 29, 1997) was an American pop artist. During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and James Rosenquist, among others, he became a leading figure in the pop art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art through parody. Favoring comics as his main source of inspiration, Lichtenstein used primary colors, thick dark lines, balloons containing text and sound effects, and dotting used as a shading method. His work was heavily influenced by popular advertising.
The "Brushstrokes" series of artwork includes several paintings and sculptures whose theme is the actions done with a wall painter's brush.
Roy Lichtenstein - "Brushstroke" - 1996 - painted aluminum - 980 x 670 x 180 cm - Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, - Brushstrokes in Flight - 1984 - painted aluminum - Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio
Roy Lichtenstein - Expressionist Head - 1980 - Painted and painted bronze on painted wood base - 139.7 x 113 , 7 x 45.7 cm - multiple with six issues
Roy Lichtenstein - "El Cap de Barcelona (The Head)" - 1991-1992 - concrete and ceramics - 19.51 m
"El Cap de Barcelona" (in Catalan) for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. It is an abstract interpretation of a woman's head. Although it is abstract, it is clear that the sculpture was made to resemble the head and face of a woman. It is composed of thick pieces of concrete completely covered by red, yellow, blue, black and white mosaic tiles, and from a distance it looks like a painting. Part of the face is covered with red dots, typical of the Lichtenstein pop-art style. Similar to the Brushstrokes sculptures of the early eighties, the sculpture appears to have been painted with a few quick paint strokes. The difference between them is that the "Brushstrokes" pieces were created in painted aluminum, while "El Cap de Barcelona" is their only piece made in concrete and covered in mosaics. The reason for this difference is that "El Cap de Barcelona" was built to resemble the style of Antonio Gaudi, a Spanish architect, who is famous for employing organic lines and mosaics throughout his architecture, for which Barcelona is known.

Roy Lichtenstein - "House I" - 1996 / 1998 - painted aluminum - 290 x 450 x 130 cm - National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC
"House I" uses optical illusion to play with perspective. To appreciate the complete effect, walk at a steady pace along the sidewalk arch that passes in front and almost perpendicular to the sculpture, with the head turned to one side, facing the sculpture. The house will seem to spin in space, like the home of the movie "The Wizard of Oz."
