Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997) Cathedral #4, from the CATHEDRAL Series, 1969, edition of 75 plus proofs, published by Gemini G.E.L., Los Angeles (Corlett, 78). Signed and dated "Roy Lichtenstein '69" in pencil l.r., numbered "70/75" in pencil l.l., copyright and publisher's dry stamps l.r. Color lithograph on paper, image size 41 3/4 x 27 1/8 in. (106.1 x 68.6 cm), framed. Condition: Not examined out of frame. N.B. Lichtenstein's Cathedral series was one of two created in homage to French Impressionist Claude Monet The other was his Haystack series, also of 1969. Like Monet, Lichtenstein depicts the façade of Rouen Cathedral. Unlike Monet, each of Lichtenstein's prints uses precisely the same image printed in different colorways. Both artists ultimately create a series of façades depicted at different times of day. Where Monet uses his ubiquitous loose Impressionistic brush strokes, Lichtenstein replaces these with his ubiquitous Ben-Day-dots.
