Critical Review

Lamp was initially created as a painted and patinated bronze sculpture in 1977. The shapes are simple, capturing a hanging green shade with an exposed incandescent light bulb. The bulb emits a circle of light onto the floor below. The round yellow disk is composed of individually outlined beams illustrated in bright yellow, black, and white. Lichtenstein presents a similar depiction of natural light shining down on his surrealist Mermaid of 1978.

The lack of shadows make the lamp and the light appear compressed against the surface of the print. Lichtenstein removes depth and volume in order to make his chosen subject matter appear like a newspaper clipping. The result is a brilliant piece of Pop Art derived through Lichtenstein's masterful craftsmanship and great attention to form. Forging new connections between art and everyday life, Lamp vacillates between the flatness of the printed page and the real world.
