In her catalogue raisonnÈ of Lichtensteinís prints, Mary Lee Corlett discusses the two woodcuts Lichtenstein made for "Polemic" in 1957 and 1959, hand-printed by a commercial printer on a letterpress. "For a brief time in the late 1950s, Lichtenstein was a latecomer to the abstract expressionist style. This is visible in his last two prints of that decade. Both were made for ‘Polemic,’ a literary-art journal published by the student council at Adelbert College, Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio." No edition size is stated, but it is known that 2,000 copies were printed of the 1958 issue. Woodcut crisp and new, far superior to that illustrated in Corlett.
