The following is an excerpt from: Christie’s New York. (1988). Contemporary art from the Tremaine Collection, (9 November 1988). (Introduction by Tracy Atkinson, Curator of the Tremaine Collection), (p. 16).

"In 1963 Lichtenstein began making small color drawings for his paintings. Most of these studies are single frame images which are taken out of the comic strip context. The scale of these drawings was originally determined by the size of the projector Lichtenstein used to project the sketches onto canvas."
