Dane Fine Art Celebrates 44th Anniversary With Roy Lichtenstein and Helen Frankenthaler ArtworksNov 30, 2023 12:00 EST
Roy Lichtenstein looked for inspiration in comic books, modified the strips, and made them his own. Lichtenstein (1923 – 1997) was a leading figure in the American Pop Art movement. He used parody to define the premise of Pop Art. Lichtenstein’s works were based on enlarged panels from comic books. In the upcoming November Sale of Modern & Contemporary Art, presented by Dane Fine Art, Lichtenstein’s painting titled Sunrise will be available. It is a rare 1965, limited-edition hand-signed piece published by Leo Castelli Gallery and Graphic Industries Inc. New York. For this lithograph, Lichtenstein worked on wove paper in colors. The auction will also offer Andy Warhol’s Tidal Basin (1983) and Cooking Pot (1962).
Helen Frankenthaler was considered to be a major contributor to the history of postwar American painting. Her painting Valentine for Mr. Wonderful (circa 1995) is a top lot in the upcoming sale. It is an original color etching aquatint engraving printed from 11 copper plates and five plastic plates with lithograph-printed poems and colophon. It is number 15 from the limited edition of 25. It was published by Tyler Graphics. Frankenthaler was one of the few American artists whose career spanned several generations of abstract painters while continuing to produce vital and ever-changing new work.
