Laurie Lambrecht: The First and the Unseen, and a new book

Laurie Lambrecht is exhibiting at Rick Wester Fine Art her photographs created while a studio assistant to Pop Art master Roy Lichtenstein. Many are featured in her upcoming monograph In Roy Lichtenstein's Studio, (Monacelli, 2011)

Among her most powerful images is "Roy in Yellow Interior, 1990", the photograph used for the cover of the book. In it, the viewer sees Lichtenstein painting, but there is a tromp l'oeil effect due to the scale of the domestic interior he is working on. The painter appears to be transported into another Pop world of his own creation.

See Lambrecht's website for a list of book signing events and a November lecture at the 92d St. Y in Manhattan.

Rick Wester Fine Art is located at 511 West 25th St., Suite 205, New York, New York.
