FrontRunners: Original Inking

    When the subject of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997) comes up, most of us think of paintings of oversize cartoons—such as Drowning Girl (1963), with its young woman exclaiming, “I don’t care! I’d rather sink than call Brad for help!” Less well known are the abstract prints in Lichtenstein’s Brush Stroke series, including Blonde (1989). The print is part of an eclectic mix of pieces that will appear at the 22nd annual London Original Print Fair (www.londonprintfair.com) from April 25 through 29.
