A great example of pop art in its heydays here displayed on a exhibition poster from Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark.

Many of us is familiar with the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-97) and his beautiful and creative cartoonish works with many of his works favoring the comic strip as his main inspiration. Lichtenstein was a part of the movement "The New Art Movement" and along with the legendary Warhol they made what can be described as art through parody. 

Lichtenstein favored the comic strip as his main inspiration and created hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner. His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting"

The poster is an original exhibition poster from Louisiana Museum and displays one of Lichtenstein art works which is called "Finger Pointing". 

There was made a few versions of this poster with different text. I know the "Moderna Museet Stockholm" version with its pop art exhibition that ended just four days before the Louisiana exhibition started - also in 1964. The Moderna Museet version was printed as a serigraph and the printer which made this poster is the same so I guess this is a serigraph too. But I am not sure.

This poster is not the average Roy Lichtenstein poster to be found anywhere and similar posters are to be found in auction sites and are listed for quite high sums.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
