Roy Lichtenstein conceived three major series in the 1990’s, one of them being The Interiors, which comprised of large-scale canvases exploring line, perspective and often featuring reflective surfaces such as glass or mirror. He created Hologram Interior in 1996, approximately one year before his untimely death in September 1997. Robert Fitzpatrick, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago writes, “Solitary and unlived in, the interiors represent domestic settings in which daily life and private acts can only be imagined. There is no clutter, no human presence- even the occasional nude seems to adorn rather than inhabit the space.”
