With his tongue-in-cheek Pop Art, Roy Lichtenstein would have no doubt relished the idea of a home collection inspired by his art being sold at Barneys New York.
Under the direction of the late artist’s wife, Dorothy, and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, the luxury retailer is now offering limited-edition pieces that will in part benefit the Art Production Fund. Given the breadth of Lichtenstein’s body of work and the exactitude the project required, there was much back and forth between the interested parties to ensure the colors, quality and reproduction of his work was just so. Creative director Dennis Freedman noted Monday, “One of the most important things is that we have not only the approval but we are collaborating with Dorothy. She would never do anything if she felt he would not have approved.”
