In Memory of My Feelings – Part One   Artists’ response to the poems of Frank O’Hara

Frank O'Hara was not only a leading New York poet, he was also an associate curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.

His death in 1966, following a car crash, shocked his friends and colleagues to such an extent that M.o.M.A. asked Robert Motherwell to compile a limited edition portfolio celebrating the poet’s work and love of art.More than 40 artists are represented including Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Alex Katz, Claes Oldenburg, Grace Hartigan, Roy Lichtenstein, Barnett Newman, Larry Rivers and Robert Rauschenberg

Mary Corlett writing in the Roy Lichtenstein Catalogue Raisonné says: 'Each artist was given a copy of the text of the appropriate poem, in galley-proof form with page layouts, along with a sheet of plastic, called Copyrite, on which to draw. The translucent plastic could be placed directly over the layout to execute the drawing. Plates were then made from the drawings on plastic.'   *Part Two will follow later in the Year
