In 1965, the legendary 11 Pop Artists portfolio's including Lichtenstein and Warhol were published simultaneously in three volumes for an exhibition Pop and Op, which toured the United Sates from 1965 to 1967. Lichtenstein has said that he "thinks his 11 Pop Artists prints were his first true "Pop" prints, the first ones that were really done as prints." These images that Lichtenstein created for the portfolios including Sweet Dreams Baby or aka the "Pow" print, cemented his place in Pop Art and were themes that he continued to explore throughout his career. Signed and dated in pencil from 11 Pop Artists, numbered 184/200. Published by Abrams Original Editions, New York, on aluminium coated paper the full sheet printed to the edges. This particular work of art is in the MOMA Collection.
