United in their desire to create images ‘absolutely of the moment’, Sigmar Polke, Roy Lichtenstein, and Gerald Laing—three artists on separate but inter-related artistic journeys—turned their attention in the early 1960s towards the Ben-Day dot. Featuring exceptional works inspired by this cost-effective printing method, Source and Stimulus: Polke, Lichtenstein, Laing connects these artists on the basis of their manipulation of the dot and as they transformed imagery from the commercial sphere into fine art. Published in conjunction with Lévy Gorvy’s exhibition of the same name, this fully illustrated book features a newly commissioned essay by renowned Pop scholar Marco Livingstone, as well as detailed chronologies of each artist’s career with a focus on the 1960s by David E. Brauer and Jeanette Joslin Russell.
