I have a Lichtenstein print/ poster, "That's the way it

Customer Question

I have a Lichtenstein print/ poster, "That's the way it should have begun, but it's hopeless" from 1960's on very thin (almost newspaper like) paper. The piece is 36" square. I have checked with many people and everyone claims that particular print was never created in that size. It was purchased and framed in Chicago around 1970. I only recently removed the glass because a spider web got inside. When I saw the fragile paper, i immediately put it back together. Can anyone tell me what it is or who I might take it to, to find out. I'm happy to pay an appraisal fee but want to take it to the right person....someone who knows Lichtenstein and/or the art of the sixties. Help! Thank you. Rena Tonelli
