Sandwich and Soda, Unframed

Sandwich and Soda, Unframed



Sandwich and Soda is the first of Roy Lichtenstein's frequent examples of printing on unorthodox surfaces, in this case a clear plastic sheet, a choice most likely inspired by his work as a commercial draftsman. This work is from the edition of 500 printed by printed by Sirocco Screenprinters and Ives-Sillman, Inc., New Haven and published by The Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford.  From the X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters) portfolio.

From The Tate Modern: In the 1960s there was a deliberate attempt by artists and print publishers to reach a bigger audience for art through the production of prints that were released in large editions. This objective was facilitated by screenprinting, a process which yielded many more examples than the more traditional printmaking methods of engraving or lithography. This print is from a portfolio entitled 'X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters)' which was produced in an editionof 500 prints in 1964. Printed on plastic, this is one of Lichtenstein's first Pop prints, and the first to be made on a surface other than paper. Lichtenstein's printmaking is distinguished by the artist's use of technical innovations and experimental materials.
