December 6, 2016
Philadelphia, PA, USALive Auction
1997, pencil signed and dated 1998 by Dorothy Lichtenstein, numbered 71/75 (there were also 25 artist''s proofs), the full sheet, published by the Estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Noblet Serigraphie, Inc., New York, for the benefit of the American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Color screenprint on wove paper.
image: 40 5/8 x 30 3/8 in. (103.2 x 77.2cm)
sheet: 50 11/16 x 39 1/2 in. (128.7 x 100.3cm)
The please note that the paper is hinged to its support in such a way that the sheet was not examined verso. The paper is presumably Somerset, as called for by Corlett, but because of the hinging, the watermark was not observed.
The sheet ever-so-slightly toned. With the faintest tiny area of surface soiling in the yellow at upper right. This is barely perceptible. Generally in very good original condition.
