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.
