2.0 out of 5 stars Roy Lichtenstein 7 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived in good time but unfortunately the pages are all loose and the cover is falling off so it is going to be difficult to use in school with my students as we could loose the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb illustrations, intelligent text! 9 Sep 1999
By John Stedman (stylish@looksmart.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Taschen triumphs again with a beautifully produced overview of Lichtenstein's entire career, with excellent reproductions of his major works and some less wellknown pieces. Essential.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing 14 Dec 2007
By Reich Claude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being a fan of the Modern Masters series, I was a little disappointed with this book, not because of its text, which is full of information and insightul remarks written by a leading art historian, but because of the illustrations, most of which are in black and white. Lichtenstein's works gain a lot at being well reproduced and, in this case, this is a major flaw. Apart from that, the entire career of the artist is studied and most of his major works, especially the paintings from the 1960's, are illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop at its best 9 April 2007
By Reich Claude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is the catalogue for an exhibition held at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in 2006. It studies Lichtenstein's work chronologically and dividing it by themes (women, interiors, early paintings...). The reproductions are very good and even show the paintings in their current frame (an unusual step which I think gives an extra dimension to the works). A very interesting book, easy to read, on an artist that changed the way we look at art.

One of the subjects I teach is K - 4 Fine Arts. I have found this whole series of books to be a great review for me in my preparation and planning, as well as a user friendly resource for the children.

Love all the' Getting to Know the Worl's Greatest Artists," books. I have purchased several of the books in the series and have found them full of fun facts, illustrations and examples of the artist's work that I will use in my middle school classroom and recommend this and the other books in the series!
