Roy Lichtenstein: Conversations With Surrealism

Essays by Charles Stuckey and Frederic Tuten. Foreword by Jack Cowart.

Charles Stuckey writes in his essay "Lichtenstein and Surrealism" that, "Searching for a worldwide audience in the 1930s, the Surrealists nowhere received more welcome than in the United States, with important exhibitions at the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Julien Levy Gallery quickly became something of an official New York headquarters. By the 1940s when Lichtenstein attended art school at Ohio State University, Surrealism was widely acclaimed as the matrix style for contemporary American abstract art." So no one should be surprised that the young Lichtenstein's work of that era is "fundamentally Surrealist in spirit," and that the style that influenced him as a young man would carry over into his life's work. The paintings and works on paper in Conversations with Surrealism show the movement's continuing power and inspiration through to the 1970s, when Lichtenstein drew on the work of Dali, Magritte and Picasso. The works from this series endow Surrealist archetypes such as dreamlike landscapes with Lichtenstein's distinctive style, weaving the artist himself into an art-historical narrative. Conversations with Surrealism offers a glimpse into the development of some of Lichtenstein's best-known motifs, including his "self-portraits," in which various objects represent the artist's head and face. Includes a work of short fiction by Frederic Tuten, author of The Green Hour.
