Highlights of the auction include Lichtenstein’s monumental ‘View from the Window’, color lithograph, woodcut and serigraph, from the Landscape series, 1984. In this work, Lichtenstein almost entirely obscures the landscape behind thicket obvious brushstrokes, both cartoonish and realistic. -look in style – although not brushstrokes at all, but rather printed facsimiles. A nod to his “Brushstroke” series of the 1960s, these patterns were central to Lichtenstein’s work: rather than using brushstrokes as a tool to create a final image, he made them his subject. Lichtenstein was fascinated by the idea of ​​painting pictures upon pictures – as with most of the artist’s work, this results in a great tension between flatness and depth, style and substance.
