Last Lichtenstein for now

Finishing up almost a week-long series on Lichtenstein, here is Girl in Mirror (I believe this is by Richard Morton:

A version of this is also on display at Legoland Windsor:



Sparks came up with this version of In the Car:



Finally, Tim Kirnan made his own LEGO Lichtenstein (at least I think this is his own homage based on Lichtenstein's style and not a rendition of a specific work):

One more from Eugene Tan. Here is his rendition of Kiss IV:

This painting was also covered by Brian Korte:

More Lichtenstein

LEGO renditions of Lichtenstein's work just seem so fitting, because pop art is all about objects and media from the mass culture. I think he would appreciate these, since he also parodied the paintings of other artists, like his rendition of Van Gogh's Bedroom at Arles. Also his use of solid bold colors matches the LEGO palette well. And so, here is a little gallery of additional LEGO versions of Lichtenstein works:

Brick DeeZines, who made one of the versions of Girl with a Hair Ribbon noted yesterday, also made a version of Pop!, a cover that Lichtenstein created on commission for a 1966 issue of Newsweek that featured pop artists:



Eugene Tan, also featured yesterday, made this version of Whaam!:

And here's a version that is on display at Legoland Windsor:



John Hildebrand made versions of Sunrise:


and Clouds and Sea:

Lichtenstein was known for his large paintings and other works done in the style of comic book illustrations. Todd Thuma made this LEGO rendition of Lichtenstein's Girl with a Hair Ribbon
