Roy Lichtenstein was fascinated by the repeating designs and graphic play of light and shadow of entablatures. Around 1970, Lichtenstein began photographing architectural facades—one such photo shown here—and decorative motifs in Lower Manhattan. The forms captured in these photographs provided the foundation for a new body of work that included drawings, prints, and paintings, marking a shift away from the comic books and advertisements that had served as source material for the artist's groundbreaking pop works. See a diverse array of his works on paper related to his Entablatures series now on view in Order and Ornament: Roy Lichtenstein's Entablatures. #RoyLichtenstein
