United in their desire to create images that were "absolutely of the moment," Sigmar Polke, Roy Lichtenstein, and Gerald Laing—three artists on separate but parallel artistic trajectorieseach developed their painterly appropriation of the Ben-Day dot motif in the early 1960s, when they began drawing on imagery from the commercial sphere and transforming it into fine art. Featuring exceptional works inspired by this cost-effective printing method, Source and Stimulus: Polke, Lichtenstein, Laing uses these artists' engagement with the Ben-Day dot as a lens through which the historical and stylistic resonances among their works from the '60s may be illuminated. Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition of the same name, this fully illustrated catalogue features a newly commissioned essay by renowned Pop art scholar Marco Livingstone, as well as detailed chronologies of each artist’s career by David E. Brauer and Jeanette Joslin Russell.
