It is not known how many were originally printed, but now it's more important how many have survived in good condition. Other pop artists were planned to be included in this project, although few were completed. 
Notes from the Archive: America's favorite pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein was a painter, sculptor and printmaker. His contribution - the collision of commercial or comic images and fine art defined the legacy of the Pop Art Movement. This is a special opportunity to own a small work by an important modern icon. Examples are in many museum collections and especially university collections, as Lichtenstein donated the sets he retained to major US universities. These plates are often seen individually framed in a plexiglass box and wall hung.
