Roy Lichtensteins Nudes was created in Lichtenstein began work on collages for the Nudes series in his New York studio during the spring of In December of that year he hand-cut the Rubylith stencils for the key outline relief plates for each image, and in February he made his first visit to the workshop for this project. Most of the plates used to print the series were assembled using an aluminium, or in some cases Lexan — a rigid, thick plastic — base plate on which were mounted the irregularly shaped photo-polymer plastic pieces that created the image areas. The key outline plates, with one exception, were made of an irregularly shaped magnesium plate mounted onto a base plate. For one key plate, the irregularly shaped plate was made of plastic. Roy Lichtenstein was a pop art painter whose works, in a style derived from comic strips, portray the trivialization of culture endemic in contemporary American life.

License this image. Nude Reading is one of a series of nine screenprints that Lichtenstein produced in on the subject of the nude. The prints were made at Tyler Graphics Ltd. As well as using hand-cut stencils to produce his trademark Benday dots in irregularly shaped pieces, Lichtenstein employed computer-generated dye-cut stencils, produced by Swan Engraving, for some of the areas of dots and patterns in these prints. In the final years of his life, Lichtenstein took up the theme of the nude — one of the major subjects in the history of visual art — and it became an important part of his late work. As well as series of prints, Lichtenstein made paintings on the subject of the nude, including works such as Nudes with Beach Ball and Blue Nude
I am also certain that there are callings and opportunities that I would have had, were I married to a faithful LDS woman, that I have missed. If things get even more serious, try getting her to sign a pre-nup that neither she, nor her family will try to convert you. Not every LDS person does, unfortunately. Mine was in California, back in the 70s.
