Haystack #1–#7
Seven color lithographs • 1969
Roy Lichtenstein executed his first Pop prints in 1962, translating his trademark dot technique (inspired by comics and illustrations) from painting to the field of lithog- raphy. This series of seven prints is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the French Impressionist Claude Monet. In his series, begun in 1890, Monet painted fields of haystacks at different time of the day with shimmering touches of contrasting color. Reduced to repitions of single colors in Lichtenstein’s prints, Monet’s high art motif becomes a reproducible icon.
