Lichtenstein’s Tokyo Brushstroke I & II
A brush with greatness
What a wonderful surprise to see Roy Lichtenstein’s Tokyo Brushstroke sculptures outside of the Parish Art Museum.
While on my way home from Montauk, I passed the Parrish Art Museum in Watermill, New York. I didn’t go inside but I did stop to admire the Roy Lichtenstein pieces that are installed at the entry: Tokyo Brushstroke I & II.
He happens to be one of my favorite artists so seeing his monumental sculptural work was a treat.
Aren’t they wonderful? They’re like three-dimensional cartoons. Their primary colors beautifully backdropped by the cloudless sky.
Something about this brushstroke makes me think about pop art bacon.

Thanks for sharing. I like larger art pieces, however Lichtenstein’s works don’t really appeal to me. Such is the human condition. An interesting museum in Long Island City: http://www.noguchi.org/visitor-info/getting-here .
My Mom had a Noguchi lamp and a drawing, and with her passing last year, my daughter has taken them in. Bob
I am a fan. In fact I really like art, most art. Dark dreary stuff I don’t like. Lichtenstein on the other hand I like.
For the last few years I have been ‘stealing’ art. I have a method. I take fairly close up photos, excluding the frame. Then I put all the art photos in an ‘art’ folder on the Mac, and then set that as the screen saver on the Mac and Apple TV. Soon I am adding a second iMac, and another TV, so there will be four screens in the house showing off my ever expanding collection of ‘stolen’ art.
