Note: A key 1967 example of Lichtenstein’s rare ground-breaking use of three dimensional optical imagery in his prints - then known as ‘Vari-vue’. This work was Lichtenstein’s contribution to the iconic collection of ten works by the leading Pop and avant-garde artists showing at the 10 year anniversary exhibition at Leo Castelli’s leading New York Gallery in 1967.
Excellent impression in exceptionally fine condition (there are the usual slight surface irregularities in the application of the collaged layers as is found in almost every example). Image size: 279 x355mm. Overall size (inc. mount): 602 x 505mm.
