Opening Reception – Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky Join

158 Main Street
East Hampton, New York 11937

Join us for the opening of Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky, a celebration of the artist’s abiding relationship with the East End of Long Island. In 1964, inspired by both the long history of art and by imagery he found on contemporary printed postcards, Lichtenstein began to explore the genre of land and seascapes, using paint, plastic, enamel, drawings, collage, print, and even film to realize his various works. Seascapes were an essential part of the artist’s lifelong exploration of psychological optics, light and his keen observations on the nature of field and ground. They were a genre he would revisit throughout his career in various media and guises. Comprised of over 30 works form private lenders and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, the exhibition will include works from the 1960s-1990s.
