The Roy Lichtenstein collection in New York
NEW YORK-Barneys New York has partnered with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund to launch a limited-edition collection of home goods, available exclusively this summer at Barneys New York.
The summer-themed collection includes trays, placemats, china dishes, glasses, paper plates, paper cups, pillows, summer toys and beach accessories 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), among others.
"Barneys New York is thrilled to partner with the estate of Roy Lichtenstein and Art Production Fund," said Barneys CEO Mark Lee. "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."
Twenty-five percent of all sales from the collection will benefit Art Production Fund, a non-profit which supports public art projects. The collection will retail between $28 and $295 and will be available at the Barneys New York Madison Avenue flagship, as well as Beverly Hills, Chicago, Miami and barneys.com.
In addition to the collection, Barneys is dedicating its windows to Roy Lichtenstein with an installation conceived by Barneys Creative Director Dennis Freedman.
