This work shows a plate on which is placed a sandwich, a glass and drinking straws. These items are shown as white forms against a band of red in the upper area and a band of blue in the lower portion of the work that serve as a background. The image looks like a comic book page with the items created in outline form against contrasting colors.
This work is one of ten prints published within a portfolio, “Ten Works + Ten Painters”, commissioned by Samuel J. Wagstaff from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in 1964. This portfolio was one of the earliest to have several artists published together to make major American artists accessible to a wider audience and range of collectors. Each print in this portfolio was based on a painting the artists had previously created. Some of the artists represented, in addition to Roy Lichtenstein, are Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly and Robert Motherwell, who were associated with the Pop and Minimalism art movements in the 1960s.
