AS I OPENED FIRE POSTER TRIPTYCH (CORLETT APP. 5) - Literature & Art] Lichtenste - 1966. 
1966. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Three offset lithographs in colours, each 24.75 x 20.75 in. (63 x 52.5 cm) each , framed in three separate frames, each 25 x 21 1/2. In very good condition, with nearly impercitable light rippling.This work was conceived in 1966 and published by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. This piece is from one of several editions of over 3,000 printed after 1966, published by the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.Depicting a short few seconds during an aircraft battle, the painting is based on three panels of the original narrative which Lichtenstein has altered to improve its formal coherence. Along with Whaam! (the other of his monumental war paintings), this is regarded as the culmination of the dramatic war-comic works of Lichtenstein. Lichtenstein commented on his war imagery: "A minor purpose of my war paintings is to put military aggressiveness in an absurd light. My personal opinion is that much of our foreign policy has been unbelievably terrifying, but this is not what my work is about and I don't want to capitalize on this popular position. My work is more about our American definition of images and visual communication."
