Behind the Art
Roy Lichtenstein: Greene Street Mural
In December 1983, Roy Lichtenstein created Greene Street Mural, an unprecedented, site-specific, and temporary wall painting at Leo Castelli Gallery at 142 Greene Street. In accordance with Lichtenstein’s intention, the work was destroyed after the six-week show. More than thirty years after its creation, Gagosian presents a full-scale painted replica of the original work, based on documentation from the artist’s studio and produced by sign painters under the supervision of his former studio assistant.
