  • Description
    Imperfect Print 1, from: Imperfect Series
    Stock Code 100826
    Roy Lichtenstein's Imperfect series, printed on 4-ply Museum Board, combines woodcut and screen print, and all but one print has metalized Mylar collage elements. Lichtenstein sent the block-line drawings for the print to Gemini GEL in advance of his arrival but worked out the colours there. For the woodcut portions, Lichtenstein cut the online (key block) and the large flat areas were printed separately from jigsaw cutout sections. To get the dense colours, several over printings were required. The silver and galvanised Mylar were prepared in sheets and then hand-cut for each of the collage elements. The silver Mylar was overprinted with a clear coat to protect the reflective surface. The galvanised Mylar was over printed with a silver run made from a rubbing of galvanised steel. A screen printed coating has been applied to the verso of each of the boards to stabilise it.
