Critical Review

Inspired by everyday furniture advertisements and Lichtenstein's own photographs, the Interiors series is the artist at his most recognisable. Born in Manhattan in 1923, Lichtenstein’s distinctive artistic style was inspired by the pervasive visual language of consumerism and American popular culture. Offering a culturally relevant aesthetic, Lichtenstein frequently evoked images, letterings, and figures that were appropriated from comic strips. He borrowed artistic techniques from the commercial printing industry in his work, utilising methods like lithography, woodcut, and screen printing.

Lichtenstein’s Interior series was created at the beginning of the 1990s and towards the end of the artist’s career. The printed sequence was inspired by clippings and images collected from everyday furniture advertisements by the artist himself. Cribbed from visuals of quotidian domesticity, these interiors are rendered in characteristically bold primary colours, delineated outlines, and Ben Day dots.

Whilst Lichtenstein's work derives from the visual vocabulary of popular culture, cartoon-like and mass-produced, his approach was in fact highly sophisticated and meaningful. His work was not only a satirical mirror to the society in which he worked but also remains decidedly relevant today. The messages, oftentimes concealed and on other occasions blatantly obvious, speak of universal themes ranging from human emotion to gender politics.

Throughout the rest of his prolific career, Lichtenstein continued to build up a rich œuvre consisting of over 5,000 works that experimented with a variety of different media. These included paintings, prints, and even three-dimensional sculptures in painted bronze and ceramic. His artworks are to this day exhibited in over 200 solo exhibitions in galleries around the world and his collections are housed in many prestigious institutions across the globe. Lichtenstein’s timeless work has sustained a consistent level of popularity both during and after his lifetime, making it accessible to a range of audiences. With this in mind, the Interior series forms a distinctive and accomplished contribution to Lichtenstein’s profitable career.
