Between 1986 and 1988 Lichtenstein worked on a group of paintings known as the "Imperfects" - geometric abstractions of eccentric shape, some of which pierce the borders of the picture's edges...In February 1987, this print series was begun at Gemini G.E.L. Each of the printed images actually does break out of the border, extending at one or more points into the surrounding margin. The "Imperfect" series, printed on 4-ply Museum Board, combines woodcut and screenprint, and all but one have metalized Mylar collage elements. Lichtenstein sent the black-line drawings for the the prints to Gemini in advance of his arrival, but worked out the colors there. For the woodcut portions, Lichtenstein cut the outline (key block), and the large flat areas were printed separately from jigsaw cutout sections."
