In December 1983, Roy Lichtenstein created Greene Street Mural, an unprecedented, site-specific, and temporary wall painting measuring 18' × 96 1/2' 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 later, Gagosian Gallery presents to a new generation of viewers a full-scale painted replica of the original work, based on documentation from Lichtenstein's studio and produced by sign painters under the supervision of his former studio assistant. Watch here.
"Roy Lichtenstein: Greene Street Mural" is on view at Gagosian Gallery West 24th Street, New York through October 17, 2015.
