Roy Lichtenstein’s Foot And Hand is bursting with stylised shapes, patterns and colours. The work was executed in 1964 and manifests the artist’s masterful printmaking skills. Foot And Hand is one of Lichtenstein’s earliest pop prints modeled on a single-panel comic.
Foot And Hand is bold and intense, delivering a subtle blow to the traditional artistic legacies of the 20th century. Lichtenstein’s print reintroduces a discredited mode of representation, thereby shaping the creative dialogues and aesthetic conventions of the 1960s. The artist manufactures a clinically precise and universally recognisable picture, using the commercial instruments of mass-printing.This slick lithograph confronts the beholder with the very essence of Pop Art.
Foot And Hand is a dynamic artwork that relies on its figurative visual language. Lichtenstein captures the moment in which a booted foot stomps on a hand reaching for a gun. The colour palette is scarce but strong, while the minimal shading evokes a flattened surface appearance. Lichtenstein applies simple black outlines and Ben Day dots to delimit the volume and dimension of his shapes. The figures are closely cropped, tempting the viewer to step into the place of one of the characters, assuming roles and motives.
