Roy Lichtenstein’s Landscape with Boat, 1996
Oil and magna on canvas (149.2 x 244.5 cm)
'I think (the Chinese landscapes) impress people with having somewhat the same kind of mystery (historical) Chinese paintings have, but in my mind it's a sort of pseudo-contemplative or mechanical subtlety…I'm not seriously doing a kind of Zen-like salute to the beauty of nature. It's really supposed to look like a printed version.'
Roy Lichtenstein, Landscape With Philosopher (1996)
One of the dominant notes of Lichtenstein’s late work is his fascination with the simplicity of Chinese Art. In 1995 he returned to the landscape genre, creating more than 20 works in homage to the highly stylised paintings of the Song dynasty (960-1279 AD).
