According to Corlett, "Beginning with his first solo exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery in 1962, and continuing until 1967, Lichtenstein (1923-1997) designed a number of images to be printed by offset lithography for mailers and posters announcing his exhibitions. Many of these images were also issued as signed prints, some of which were numbered editions."

Brushstroke was published to announce Lichtenstein's exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, November 20-December 16, 1965. Corlett II 5.
