Probably one of the most successful and acclaimed multiples of all time. Roy Lichtenstein’s ‘Paper Plate’ is literally a paper plate. They were originally sold in packs of 10 packed in cellophane. Lichtenstein created the paper plate for renowned fashion and advertising photographer Bert Stern, who opened an uber-chic New York boutique called “On First Store”. Located in chic Manhattan, Stern’s idea was to commission stylish yet affordable home and wardrobe objects to well-known fashion designers and artists. Unfortunately, the shop didn’t last long and most of the plates remained undistributed. Now they can be seen in most major art collections, including Tate Modern in London and MoMa in New York.
