Roy Lichtenstein’s Phantom Debut: How an Exhibition and a Career Came to Be

Roy Lichtenstein's first exhibition with Leo Castelli opened sixty-two years ago today, February 10th, 1962. However, prior to the show, in 1961, Lichtenstein exhibited "Girl with Beach Ball", now in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in an almost undocumented show titled "An Exhibition in Progress". We invited Avis Berman to write about the groundbreaking yet unknown 1961 show. Avis Berman is a writer and art historian currently working on a biography of Roy Lichtenstein.

Jasper Johns interview with Irving Sandler recorded on January 28, 1963

In the early 1960s critic and art historian Irving Sandler began regularly interviewing artists for the Casper Citron radio show on WRFM. On the program listeners could learn about New York exhibitions and hear artists speak with Sandler about their own works on view. On January 28th, 1963, Sandler was joined by Jasper Johns to discuss the latter’s solo exhibition at Castelli. Installed at the 4 East 77th street location, the show took place from January 12th to February 7th. The thirty-minute interview has been transcribed below and is followed by documentation of Johns’s 1963 exhibition.
