The record of a special collaboration between a great artist & a talented, resourceful photographer. In words & pictures, it tells how contemporary master Roy Lichtenstein created a 5-story-high mural for the lobby of The Equitable Life Assurance Soc. building in New York. Photographer Bob Adelman closely observes the entire artistic process, from Lichtensteins initial work in the studio through his weeks of painting on the site to the unveiling in early 1986. Highlights of the many conversations Lichtenstein & Adelman had are included. The noted author & art critic Calvin Tomkins adds an essay on Lichtenstein.
