New York, The Kiss

s_l500.jpg

One of Lichtenstein's signature trademarks is the application of pronounced Benday dots. He printed the small dots separately using a metal stencil. This scene depicts a lover's embrace from a comic book perspective. The bright golden waxy hair and crystalized tears are stylized to suit the dramatic effect Lictenstein strove for in the majority of his prints. This was designed as one of his most important original exhibit posters. Catalog reference: Prestel no. 149.
