Professor Emerita Carol Salus Featured in Roy Lichtenstein Documentary
Art history professor emerita Carol Salus was interviewed for a new ideastream documentary about artist Roy Lichtenstein and his wife, Isabel. Salus was a family friend of the Lichtensteins. The documentary centers around the couple's time living in Cleveland and Isabel's successful career as an interior decorator, by which she financially supported her family in the 1950s. "Roy Lichtenstein's impact on the art world is well documented, but the story of his pre-Pop days in Cleveland and the woman who supported him as he developed his signature style is largely unknown," stated a summary of the film.
“Isabel & Roy” premieres on May 20 on WVIZ/PBS ideastream.
