About the work
SMS # 4: Roy Lichtenstein, Folded Hat, 1968 by Roy Lichtenstein. Lithograph on plastic. 2000-piece edition. Lithograph on plastic sheet, hand-folded to form a tri-cornered hat. The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley & Dmitri Petrov which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press, working with some of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The aim was to produce a new form of art journal that would bypass traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience instead.
About the artist
Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) Roy Lichtenstein’s early appropriation of the aesthetics of American popular culture made him integral to the development of Pop art. In 1961 he began to replicate the Benday dot system used in mass-circulation printed sources such as comics, newspapers, and billboards; this would become a signature element of his painting and sculpture. By mimicking this industrial method and appropriating images from high and low culture, his work gained recognition beyond the world of contemporary art.
