Lichtenstein’s series of prints based is on Claude Monet's series of Haystacks (1891), one of the seminal series of early modern art. In his original Impressionist paintings, Monet depicted a cluster of haystacks across various times of the day to draw attention to the dynamic relationship between colour and light. Similarly, Lichtenstein’s Haystacks run from morning (yellow) to midnight (black) in a mechanical version of Monet's changing light effects.
