Very desirable pair of Roy Lichtenstein "ART OF THE SIXTIES" serigraph/silkscreen exhibition prints: "M...Maybe" and "Aloha". $1495 or best offer. Roy Lichtenstein was an American pop artist who during the 1960's and 1970's, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist, became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work is very hot right now, with some of his original pieces going for tens of millions of dollars. These two original Lichtenstein serigraph/silkscreen prints are excellent examples of the Pop Art genre. They are titled "M...Maybe" and "Aloha". Both are serigraph/ silkscreen prints that were created for Lichtenstein museum exhibitions, under his supervision, that were titled "Art of the Sixties". Both prints have been permanently dry mounted to a large piece of foam board, prior to framing. The "M...Maybe" print has been recently professionally re-framed with museum quality materials. The Aloha print is behind its original plexiglass and in its original frame. "M...Maybe" This colorful print was designed using Lichtenstein's 1965 pop art work entitled "M...Maybe", and was produced in 1979. It's approximately 57" tall by 41" wide. The only minor condition issues that were identified during re-framing were a tiny pock mark in the white border above the serigraph/silkscreen and a small crease in the upper right corner of the print's white border. These imperfections are hardly visible because they are within the white border. The rest of the serigraph remains in amazing condition with vibrant colors. "Aloha" This colorful print was designed using Lichtenstein's 1962 pop art work entitled "Aloha", and was produced in 1993. It's approximately 55" tall by 37" wide. Both the frame and plexiglass have wear, scratches and rubs so the purchaser may want to re-frame it. There are a couple of small areas on the print where rubbing against the plexiglass occurred during storage, display, and/or transport. The rubbing on the serigraph looks very minor but I don't know the extent of it. The rest of the serigraph remains in excellent condition with wonderful vibrant colors. $1495 or best offer.
