Critical Review

Mirror #7, executed in 1972, mimics the stylistic attributes of an arched window. The surface of the triple domes is dominated by dense streaks of grey dots, evoking the luminosity of glass. Jagged blue and yellow lines demarcate the mirror’s framework, adding a subtle elevation to the flattened form. The curving shape and the colourful details constitute, yet also obscure the subject matter. Lichtenstein presents the item head-on, displaying the complete absence of reflections. Thus, Mirror #7 is as much a parody, as it is an illustration of a mirror.

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.
