Roy Lichtenstein 3d room

Experience a Roy Lichtenstein 3D room – art installation

The Lichtenstein exhibition at Moco Museum Amsterdam shows a Roy Lichtenstein 3D room installation based on Lichtenstein’s painting “Bedroom at Arles”, which he made in 1992 after a postcard of Van Gogh’s famous “The Artist’s Room at Arles” (1888-89). A 3D installation of VAN GOGH ‘s painting was last presented at the Van Gogh museum in 2000.

Bedroom at Arles, 1992 Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) In this painting, Lichtenstein, reproduces in his own way the interiors of Van Gogh’s bedroom in Arles, based on a postcard from the artist itself.(pic 3) He declared: “l’ve cleaned his room up a little bit for him; and he’lI be very happy when he gets home from the hospital to see that l’ve straightened his shirts and bought some new furniture. Mine is a rather large painting and his is rather smaIl. His is much better, but mine is much bigger. Of course my work is an entirely different endeavor.This is the only interior l have done from another painting. l think the contrast between my intention and Van Gogh’s is so enormous rhat there is humor in that difference. My principal interest is che extreme difference in style. Where the Van Gogh is so emotional. and feverish. and spontaneous, my work is planned and premeditated, and painfully worked out. To translate an artist’s work into a cartoon style says something. lt seems to degrade the work by associating it with cheap reproduction. But from my point of view I am translating the Van Gogh into my style, which imitates cheap reproduction. l think the process is not so far from Picasso’s translations of Velasquez, which at the time they were done must have been seen as debasing the master.” MOCO Museum in Amsterdam recently hosted an exhibition about Lichtenstein in which the room was made 3D and visitors could actually experience the feeling of being in the painting.

Bedroom at Arles in Roy Lichtenstein’s words: “l’ve cleaned his room up a little bit for him; and he’lI be very happy when he gets home from the hospital to see that l’ve straightened his shirts and bought some new furniture. Mine is a rather large painting and his is rather smaIl (29” X 36”). His is much better, but mine is much bigger. Of course my work is an entirely different endeavor.

🦋Van Gogh bir mektubunda şöyle diyor; “Şu bir gerçek ki, gece ışığında yeşil yerine mavi görebilirim, lilayı mor seçebilirim. Ama beyaz ışıktan, mum ışığına geçtiğin zaman en zengin sarıları ve turuncuları yakalayabiliyorsun.” ⏳Bu resmi bahsettiği şekilde bir mum ışığında, gözünün o an gördüğü ve onu etkileyen renklerle resmetmiş olduğunu tahmin ediyoruz. ⏳Resimlerinde genellikle canlı sarı ve turuncu tonlarını kullanıyordu. ⏳Yağlı boya resim yaparken boyayı tüpten doğrudan tuval üstüne sıktığı, parmaklarıyla ezdiği ve bu şekilde kendine özgü stilini oluşturduğu söyleniyor. #zizissues #sanatsevercuma #vincentvangogh #bedroomatarles

The painting [Bedroom at Arles, 1992) was done after a postcard of the famous Van Gogh, The Artist’s Room at Arles, 1888 – 89.

This is the only interior Roy Lichtenstein has done from another painting. “l think the contrast between my intention and Van Gogh’s is so enormous that there is humor in that difference. My principal interest is che extreme difference in style. Where the Van Gogh is so emotional. and feverish. and spontaneous, my work is planned and premeditated, and painfully worked out.”

“To translate an artist’s work into a cartoon style says something. lt seems to degrade the work by associating it with cheap reproduction.” But from Roy Lichtensteins’ point of view he is translating the Van Gogh room into his style, which imitates cheap reproduction. “l think the process is not so far from Picasso’s translations of Velasquez, which at the time they were done must have been seen as debasing the master.” If you want to see the Roy Lichtenstein 3d room in real life you can come by the Moco Museum and visit the Roy Lichtenstein exhibition.
