On the occasion of Lichtenstein€™s Florence exhibition in 1982 the printer-publisher Fratelli Alinari, in collaboration with Lichtenstein, produced a run of 450 copies of the three screenprints entitled "Cow Triptych (Cow Going Abstract)" after Lichtenstein's eponymous painting of 1974. 150 of the 450 produced were signed by the artist at the lower right beneath the image of the first panel. These signed sets, as agreed between Alinari and Lichtenstein, were not numbered and included the original right vertical margins promoting the Florence exhibition of 1982. Unfortunately many of the signed sets that have since come to market have been trimmed, removing the details of the exhibition in the right-hand margin.
The present work is from the private collection of the printmaker Alinari, who collaborated with Lichtenstein on the project; this example was a gift from the artist and retains the original size of each sheet as respected by their agreement and indicated in Mary Lee Corlett's "The Prints of Roy Lichtenstein: A Catalogue Raisonné" (Appendix 9).

Each image measures 23.7 x 28.4 in. (60.2 x 72.2 cm.), and each sheet measures 26.1 x 35.1 in. (66.2 x 89.1 cm.). The present example is in excellent condition and is without scuffing or surface soiling.
