Various Other Works
This section documents works that are not included in the Roy Lichtenstein Catalogue Raisonné. They are mostly artworks the artist abandoned or destroyed, works that have been classified as autographs, authorized replica, or projects originating with the Estate of Roy Lichtenstein (ERL). Also listed are test pieces created by others to help with the fabrication process of Lichtenstein's Barcelona Head sculpture.
An unauthorized Lichtenstein tapestry version made outside of an authorized edition is included here to document the history of its making.
Ongoing research may lead to further entries in the future.
