Critical Review

Mirror #4, executed in 1972, captures an enlarged circle rendered in dark brown and red. Yellow stripes and black dots crowd the edges of the geometric shape, marking its framework. The slightly distorted, curving lines on the left of the circle allude to the reflective attributes of glass. Lichtenstein’s abstract patterns both constitute and obscure the central image, presenting a mirror entirely devoid of reflections. Thus, Mirror #4 is as much a misrepresentation, as it is an illustration of a familiar object.

Over the course of his career, Lichtenstein embarked on several other series dealing with vision and representation. His Water Liliesand Reflections, for instance, explore various perceptions of light and reflection. Meanwhile, Lichtenstein’s Entablatures delve further into object painting, reproducing enlarged architectural fragments as their main composition.
