This signed screen print from 1989 is a limited edition of 75 by Keith Haring. Bringing together some of Haring’s most recognisable motifs into the one print, Retrospect features a grid of 24 colourful images rendered in the artist’s simplified and linear style. Presented in the visual vocabulary of a comic strip, each frame is filled with bright, block colours.
Retrospect is indicative of Haring’s desire to create a universal pictorial language that emanates positivity and can be understood by adults and children alike. In using saturated colours, thick outlines and flattened pictorial surface, Haring plays into the visual culture of commercialism and advertisement that characterised 1980s New York. Through enlargement of scale and by establishing his trademark style, Haring brings commercialism into the realm of fine art, fulfilling his populist ideas around creating art for the masses.
Each frame in Retrospect shows a strikingly simplistic figure dancing and moving in a way that radiates a joyous energy to the viewer. This is emphasised by Haring’s use of action lines across the grid and saturated colour palette. Many of these images were taken from Haring’s original Pop Shop series (1988), where he sold these prints at an affordable price to the public.
