Remarks

The agreement between the artist and Modern Master Tapestries Inc. states an edition of 20 (RLF Archives). No formal numbering system was established. Tapestries without a known edition number are designated by the authors "unkn" and organized by number in the assumed order of production based on sales information found in Castelli Gallery inventory records, agreements between the artist and Modern Master Tapestries and Modern Master Tapestries royalty reports and letters ranging from 1979 to 1986.

The authors established version numbers to distinguish design variations within the edition, followed by letters if there was more than one tapestry produced within a version:
- Version 1 was woven after the artist's initial design
- Version 2 reflects a small revision by Lichtenstein (see drawing 1991.169.6 at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Gift of Regina Slatkin)
- Version 3 is the approved final design
- Versions 4, 5, 6 and 7 show slight weaving variations of version 3 due to lack of quality control during production

After the publisher closed c. 1986–87, at least three unauthorized pieces were ordered from Adhiraj Exports. Per the fabricator these were ordered by William D. Weber (one tapestry in 1998), Charles Zalber of Galerie Lucie Weill & Seligman, Paris (one tapestry in 2006), and Barry Cronan Fine Art, London (one tapestry in May 2006). Entries with an asterisk (*) mark unauthorized pieces.

Changes to the Terms

RLF may change these Terms from time to time by posting an updated version on this web page, or, if we determine that it is appropriate, we may provide other notice to you.  Your continued use of the Site after we post updated Terms means that you accept and agree to such Terms.  We recommend checking back on this web page regularly if you use the Site.

Termination

We reserve the right to terminate the Site, these Terms, and any Content, and your access to the Site and/or the Content, at any time without notice, for any reason.  The “Reliance on Information Posted,” “Copyright & Trademark,” “Inclusions in Catalogue Raisonné (or Lack Thereof),” “Additional Disclaimers,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” and “Governing Law” sections of these Terms (along with this provision and any other provision that by its terms contemplates survival) survive any termination of these Terms.

Governing Law

These Terms are the complete agreement between you and RLF regarding your use of the Site and is governed by applicable federal laws and the laws of the State of New York applicable to agreements made and completely performed there.  Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York located in the Borough of Manhattan in the City of New York or, only if such court does not have subject-matter jurisdiction, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County.

You irrevocably agree to bring any claim or dispute relating to your use of the Site and these Terms exclusively in the state and federal courts located in New York, to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts, and to waive any jurisdictional, venue, inconvenient forum, or other objections to those courts.  

Other

Section titles and headings are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.  The failure of RLF to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of these Terms is unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be deleted and the remaining provisions of these Terms will be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
