  • Catalogue Essay

    Sandwich and Soda is one of Lichtenstein’s first Pop prints and the first print he made on a surface other than paper. This proof, depicted in the actual size, is a miniaturized version of the final edition included in the iconic X + X (Ten Works by Ten Painters) portfolio in 1964. This proof is hand-signed by the artist, whereas, the impressions included in the X + X portfolio are historically unsigned.

    Roy Lichtenstein’s Sandwich and Soda comes from the collection of architect and art collector Hanford Yang. Yang was an early friend and collector of Lichtenstein’s work (as well as other artists), and he designed Lichtenstein’s studio in East Hampton. A selection of Yang’s collection was shown at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in 1968 called, Art of the 60’s: Selections from the Collection of Hanford Yang.
