Nude with blue hair by Roy Lichtenstein Lichtenstein began work on collages for the Nudes series in his New York studio during the spring of In December of that year he hand-cut the Rubylith stencils for the key outline relief plates for each image, and in February he made his first visit to the workshop for this project. Most of the plates used to print the series were assembled using an aluminium, or in some cases Lexan — a rigid, thick plastic — base plate on which were mounted the irregularly shaped photo-polymer plastic pieces that created the image areas. The key outline plates, with one exception, were made of an irregularly shaped magnesium plate mounted onto a base plate. For one key plate, the irregularly shaped plate was made of plastic.

Sale Price realised USD , Roy Lichtenstein's monumental Nude with Blue Hair represents the triumphal return of the comic heroine in the Pop master's late career. This provocative domestic goddess, rendered in the artist's bold signature style, is a modern variation on an ancient artistic genre. Like Picasso, Renoir, and Matisse before him, Lichtenstein seized on the classic theme of the female nude late in life, using the motif to invent new creative possibilities.
