Lichtenstein offered at Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Art - Prints & Multiples Auction
Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), Nude with Blue Hair, from Nudes, 1994. Relief in colors on Rives BFK paper, 51-3/16 x 31-5/8 inches. Estimate: $300,000 - $500,000.


DALLAS, TX.- An iconic image from American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein is projected to bring as much as $500,000 in Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Art – Prints & Multiples Auction April 17 in Dallas.

Heritage will offer Lichtenstein's 1994 Nude with Blue Hair, from Nudes (est. $300,000-500,000) as part of a series of images that used 1960s comic book caricatures rather than live image for inspiration.

"Heritage is honored to offer this monumental work by Roy Lichtenstein," Holly Sherratt, Heritage Auctions' Director of Modern & Contemporary Art, San Francisco, said. "Hutcheson was a Master Printer in all of the traditional printing techniques, including etching, woodcut, lithography, silkscreen and papermaking. During the 1980s, John Hutcheson ran his own workshop in the New York City area and developed personal relationships with hundreds of artists. His prints appear in private and museum collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Tyler Collection Archives in Australia, Japan, Singapore and Minneapolis."

Nude with Blue Hair epitomizes the incredible talent of Lichtenstein, as well as the technical expertise of Hutcheson, who contributed to Lichtenstein's vision using complex stencils and state of the art printing methods. The Nudes series exemplifies Lichtenstein's signature comic book style: the artist adhered to a strict color palette of primary colors heavily outlined in black, while also branching out by contrasting geometrical shapes and lines against the curves of the subject's body. Lichtenstein employed unconventional shading with his benday dot technique, a process that mimics commercial comic book printing with dynamic dots that create optical illusions. This lot offers the rare opportunity to own one of the most significant works by Lichtenstein from the collection of the printer whose work with artists such as Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler and David Hockney helped influence art history.
