sleeping girl karya Roy Lichtenstein bakal dilelong RM120.4 juta

Lukisan artis Roy Lichtenstein bertajuk Sleeping Girl yang diinspirasikan daripada buku komik dijangka dapat dilelong pada harga AS$40 juta (RM120.4 juta) oleh rumah lelongan Sotheby's di New York pada 9 Mei depan.

Lukisan tahun 1964 yang memaparkan seorang wanita berambut perang dan seksi itu merupakan sebahagian daripada siri lukisan Lichtenstein. Ia disifatkan sebagai hasil karya terhebat dunia seni pasca perang Amerika Syarikat.

"Sleeping Girl ialah salah satu karya terbaik kurun ke-20. Ia sebaris dengan lukisan ikonik wanita oleh pelukis seperti Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi dan Amedeo Modigliani.


"'Gadis-gadis' Lichtenstein sememangnya antara hasil karya Lichtenstein yang paling dikehendaki pada hari ini. Sleeping Girl didambakan oleh para peminatnya sejak ia dihasilkan pada tahun 1964. Lukisan ini amat segar dan bertenaga, seolah-olah ia baru dilukis semalam," kata Ketua Seni Kontemporari Seluruh Dunia Sotheby's, Tobias Meyer.

info tambahan:

Roy Lichtenstein (October 27, 1923 – September 29, 1997) was a prominent American pop artist. During the 1960s his paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City and along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist and others he became a leading figure in the new art movement.

His work defined the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody. [2] Favoring the old-fashioned comic strip as subject matter, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions that documented while it parodied often in a tongue-in-cheek humorous manner.

His work was heavily influenced by both popular advertising and the comic book style. He described Pop Art as, "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting"
