ROY LICHTENSTEIN PRINT FOR NEUE AUCTIONS SALE

A screen-print in colors by Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997), titled The Oval Office, a politically-themed work that is especially meaningful in today’s trying times, is an expected star lot in Neue Auctions’ online sale of modern art and design slated for Saturday, August 22nd. Previews will be held in the Beachwood gallery (outside of Cleveland).

The Lichtenstein screen-print, on Rives BFK paper, is signed and dated in pencil lower right, and numbered (158/175), with the printer’s blind stamp “X” lower right. The artist’s ink stamp is on verso. It was printed by Brand X Editions (N.Y.) and co-published by the artist and Ronald Feldman Fine Arts (N.Y.). It’s expected to gavel for $30,000-$50,000.

The 36 inch by 45 ½ inch work (sight, less the frame) was commissioned as part of the Artists for Freedom of Expression Project, to benefit the Democratic National Committee during the 1992 Clinton/Gore campaign. It was later chosen as one of six commemorative inaugural posters by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. It is in very good condition.
