House 1, 1996/1998 by Roy Lichtenstein (American, 1923-1997).
The sculpture incorporates the hallmark elements of the artist's two-dimensional works: crisp elemental drawing delineated by heavy black outlines and a palette based on primary colors. Exploiting the illusionistic effects of the third dimension, House I appears to project forward from a distance, although it actually recedes into space. Gift of The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.
