Roy Lichtenstein - "Monalisa" "Hopeless" and "Bauhaus Stairway"

I decided to start with Roy Lichtenstein as one of the clues to the Barrio's work. "Hopeless" is one of the many of Lichtenstein work, a pop-artist, that the comic-book format is used. That's one of Barrios dialog. He did these two works as comic-books.

I want you to notice that Lichtenstein also have his dialog with art. You can see at his "Monalisa"* and "Bauhaus Stairway". Monalisa is one of the most famous masterpieces and Bauhaus a German school that operated from 1919 to 1933 and influenced architecture, designs and art.

*This is not a real Roy Lichtenstein, look at "signature" at the bottom-left It's a the way he would have done it by Meowza Katz who also did versions of Mona Lisa at the series "If other artists drew the Mona Lisa" made with Aviary the free online editor.

Too bad the Nazis closed this wonderful place and destroyed so much of their art. Too bad.

Have a terrific day Ana. :)

Ana said...

Yes sweetie!
Yes. They destroyed many artists... and art.
Under the label "Degenerated Art".

Ana, you blog on so much that influenced my life for so long. My thesis was on the neo-platonism in Keats, "Ode on a Grecian Urn' and the movie Bright Star is plebeian at best. I've seen too many English countryside movies to be awed by scenery and the chap who played Keats made me nauseous. His poetry was poorly picked and even more atrociously delivered.

I knew it! I knew you were a bluestocking.
I can see it because of what you say and the way you say.
Yippee Yippee!
I loved having you here!

i was just wondering, has Licthenstein for real made that version of Mona Lisa, or is it just a 'joke'?

Hi SOfie,
Thank you for pointing it out. It is a joke and I did put a note to stress it and make it more clear.
