This powerful retrospective of our best known American pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein, opens tomorrow at the Tate Modern.
125 paintings and sculptures are exhibited – many instantly recognisable and others a treat to see and study.
Lichtenstein is best known for his paintings based on comic strips, featuring bold lines and coloured with hand painted dots.
His late ‘Brushstroke’ paintings are just wonderful in their simplicity.
Should there be a homage to Howard Hodgkin…?!
After enjoying this fantastic exhibition, refreshments were served in the dramatic surroundings of the former Bankside Power Station, now the Tate Modern.
Roy Lichtenstein, A Retrospective is on at Tate Modern, from 21 February to 27 May 2013.
