Roy Lichtenstein Grrrrrrrrrrr!! (1993)
On view at the Bergarde Stable
A German shepard faces the beholder. Its aggressive attitude is being emphasized by the typographical Grrrrrrrrrrr!! This is a signed print after the original painting by Pop Art artist Roy Lichtenstein (now in the collection of the Guggenheim, New York). Lichtenstein derived the image from the comic Our Fighting Forces #66 (February, 1962). With his clean painterly style, he copied cheap commercial mass-printing techniques in a traditional medium for the High Arts.
