Subject matter
In the fall of 1968, Lichtenstein saw an exhibition, "Serial Imagery", at the Pasadena Art Museum, and, inspired by the works by Claude Monet included in the show, began making his series of Haystack and Rouen Cathedral lithographs. This print is one of that series printed in 1969 at Gemini G.E.L. in collaboration with master printer Kenneth Tyler. It shows Lichtenstein's technique of using Benday dots, a commercial graphic design process, to create his image.

Physical Description
This print has a white background with a pattern of bright yellow dots covering its surface. Yellow lines and shapes are formed in areas where the dots overlap or merge.
