Meaning & Analysis

Reverie references Mitchell Parish's lyrics, written for the 1927 love ballad "Stardust" by Hoagy Carmichael. Accordingly, Lichtenstein presents a melancholy cartoon portrait of a blonde crooner, midsong. Reverie applies a simple, yet disruptive visual vocabulary, one characteristic of advertisements and comic strips. The print is scaled dramatically, informing the viewer about the precise techniques employed in its making.

It’s slick mass-produced aesthetic challenges the traditional artistic legacies of the 19th century, reintroducing discredited perspectives into contemporary artistic dialogue. There are no obscure meanings in this work to decode. Nonetheless, Lichtenstein’s Reverie is a conceptually complex work. Firstly, the print manifests social changes domineering 1960s America in the aftermath of the war. Moreover, Lichtenstein also stages the work as an affectionate tribute to music.Reverie is asking questions about the assumed status of jazz, as well the respective places of fine art and comics.
