Roy Lichtenstein Foundation

The Lichtenstein Foundation, in accordance with the wishes of the artist and his family, has created a database of images available on the web. Users can view the artists works chronologically, by genre, or by place where the exhibition was held. There is a collection of public sculptures, public murals and a section of current and upcoming exhibitions. The foundation also has aquired the Shunk photographic collection which includes over 100,000 images of art and artists and events. Also ArtStor, through a collaboration with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and Estate, has made available an additional 395 images of Lichtenstein’s works in the Digital Library. This third release to the collection includes high-quality images of Lichtenstein’s paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture from the 1970s along with the associated cataloging records, bringing the total number of images in the Roy Lichtenstein collection to 1,172 images.
