Critical Review

Created in 1967, the ten part suite reduces the attributes of the landscape genre to essential compositional and pictorial elements. The resulting fictitious landscapes demonstrate Lichtenstein’s experimental and singular use of materials and preparatory processes.

Landscape 10 presents a playful photo-collage split in two by a bold horizon line. The upper half of the work consists of an abstracted and hazy illustration of grey skies. Below, the artist inserts a photograph depicting sand imprinted with bird claw marks. Plastic Rowlux sheets have been employed in the making of this print to create spatial and textural interplays. Besides providing distance from traditional painting techniques, the shimmery fabric also imitates changing light.

Reflectivity and perception soon became significant subjects for Lichtenstein. His quest to create illusionistic effects using experimental materials continued throughout his career. For instance, he pursued comparable optical plays in his Mirrors and later Water Lilies.
