Los Angeles, CA, November 29, 2017 –(PR.com)– Iconic works by Roy Lichtenstein are to be featured at the Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art gallery exhibition at Art Miami. Roy Lichtenstein, one of the world’s renowned leaders of the Pop Art Movement, transformed commercial art, advertising, and print design and established printmaking as a significant art form from the 1960’s onward. Lichtenstein’s accessible artistic icons, impactful pictorial language, and bold colors are unmistakable.
A highlight of the exhibition is Lichtenstein’s "Collage for Three Swiss Cheese Doors," an impressive and memorable work. Each collage is one of three preparatory works for three sets of double doors commissioned for a private collector. This set of collages celebrates Lichtenstein’s artistic sensibility and unique signature humor. Swiss cheese is an iconic symbol in Lichtenstein’s work, vibrant and bold in both shape and color. He first used the motif in a painting of a large cheese wedge and then as a symbolic head, cleverly transforming the holes into eyes. He later integrated this iconic imagery into the decor of his studio, with a composition of swiss cheese collages on his elevator doors.
At Art Miami, Novak will also be featuring notable works from important artists: Sam Francis, Richard Diebenkorn, Jim Dine, Jean Dubuffet, Ralph Goings, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Frank Stella, Alexander Calder, Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Motherwell, and others.
