ABOUT THE ART
The summer-themed collection includes trays, placemats, china dishes, glasses, paper plates, paper cups, pillows, flying discs, pool floats, water bottles, and beach accessories, including bags, towels, and beach balls covered in Lichtenstein's iconic Pop Art images of the '60s, '70s, and beyond.
Lichtenstein original artwork utilized for this special collaboration includes Ice Cream Soda (1962), Drawing for Kiss IV (1963), Baked Potato (1962), Bananas and Grapefruit I (1972), and much more.
"Barneys New York is thrilled to partner with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund," said Mark Lee, Chief Executive Officer, Barneys New York. "This collaboration has been in the works for some time. It's very exciting for us to mesh Barneys' appreciation of art with our desire to bring exclusive and limited-edition product to our customers, including our Chelsea Passage customers."
25% of all sales from the collection will benefit Art Production Fund, a non-profit founded by Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen and directed by Casey Fremont Crowe which supports public art projects.
"We are honored to be a part of this collaboration that provides the public with greater access to Lichtenstein's iconic and rarer works," said Art Production Co-Founders Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen. "The playful collection pays homage to the artist's longstanding interest in designing his own functional objects and in American consumerism in general."
In addition to the collection, Barneys New York will dedicate its famed windows to Roy Lichtenstein with an installation conceived by Barneys Creative Director Dennis Freedman. The windows will be unveiled and the collection will be available for purchase in late April.
