Order and Ornament: Roy Lichtenstein's Entablatures
Opens September 27, 2019
#whitneymuseum, New York

This exhibition presents a diverse array of works on paper from Roy Lichtenstein’s Entablatures series, ranging from never-before-exhibited photographic studies and sketchbooks that initiated the series in the early 1970s to his technically experimental prints that form the culmination of the series in 1976. The first exhibition at the Whitney devoted to the artist since the transformative gift of the #roylichtenstein Study Collection, this presentation provides a focused look at a single pivotal series, highlighting Lichtenstein’s unique processes and inventive techniques across drawings, prints, photographs, and archival materials.

This exhibition is organized by David Crane, curatorial fellow.
