Roy Lichtenstein: Reflections and Roy Lichtenstein: Tokyo Brushstrokes
Two documentary films featuring Roy Lichtenstein – one of the great pop artists of our time – discuss his work, his artistic process, and the sources of his inspiration.

In Roy Lichtenstein: Reflections, the artist was filmed in his studios in New York City and Southampton, Long Island, as well as on location in Los Angeles and ROme. Featured are Lichtenstein’s Large Scale Murals, Refelctions Series, and his Interior Series.

Lichtenstein: Tokyo Brushstrokes offers comprehensive documentation on a major public sculpture by the Pop master. In this film, we see Lichtenstein starting from a collection of brushstrokes he created for collages, selecting images, making models, meeting with the Japanese architect and curator, enlarging the drawings to some thirty feet, fabricating the sculptures in a foundry, and finally, installing the sculptures in Tokyo where all the work of preparation gives way to the mystery of creation.

This movies is presented in collaboration with the Initiative for Public Art – Reston (IPAR)
