Lichtenstein, who devoted himself seriously to printmaking earlier than any other major artist of his generation (he made his first two prints in 1948 - a lithograph and a woodcut - and by 1950 had added etching and screenprint to his repertoire), is widely acknowledged as one of the most important printmakers of our time. Printmaking often provides him with an arena in which he is at his most experimental, apt to try something new, especially with materials.
The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein catalogues and reproduces each of the artist's prints, as well as original posters, book and magazine illustrations, announcements, etc., 350 in all. Every work that is color in the original is reproduced in color. The volume's reference value is enhanced by a Chronology, Exhibition History, Bibliography, Concordances, and Index.

Published in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition organized by the National Gallery and traveling to Los Angeles and Dallas, this newest addition to the publisher's series of catalogues raisonnes is an elegant survey of the enormous contribution to printmaking made by a major figure in late 20th-century American art. The book offers a view of the very earliest works, few of which have been reproduced, and then goes on to the posters, illustrations, and graphic series, offering a detailed examination of the themes, language, and experimental techniques that have made Lichtenstein an enduring figure for over four decades. The catalogue provides an excellent key, chronology, exhibition history, and concordance, and each entry has a wealth of information, including the runs for works produced in printmaking workshops. An important contribution to any large collection and essential for art libraries.

A handsomely produced inventory of the printed works of a witty pop movement artist, this book is a lavish pleasure. Unlike fellow pop artists Andy Warhol and James Rosenquist, Lichtenstein is as much a printmaker as a painter. As Cortlett (coauthor, A Graphic Muse: Prints by Contemporary Women) notes, the artist's work revitalizes the "exhausted symbols of popular culture" in benday dots, heavy black outlines and abstracted reflections, woodgrain and architecture, a "potent syntax" that the book reproduces faithfully. Cortlett and Fine, staff members at the National Gallery of Art, where the traveling exhibition this book accompanies will begin, include even ephemeral items, like book covers and shopping bags; Fine's notes on the 349 color plates and 58 black-and-white illustrations are detailed.
