Roy Lichtenstein in his Studio: A Talk with Laurie Lambrecht
Thursday, October 18th, 2012
Roy Lichtenstein in His Studio is a portfolio of vivid and engaging photographs by Laurie Lambrecht, who was an assistant to Lichtenstein for three years. Lichtenstein is shown working on two major series: Reflections and The Interiors. He is completely absorbed, oblivious to the camera, as he mounts ladders, assembles colors, composes and steps back to consider the effect. During this period Lambrecht assisted in gathering material for a major retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. As a result, the photographs include scrapbooks and sketchbooks and other archival material that document Lichtenstein's entire career. Lambrecht will speak about her experiences working with Lichtenstein and sign copies of her book.
In conjunction with the Open Lens exhibit, Roy Lichtenstein In His Studio: Photography by Laurie Lambrecht.
