Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at the Tate Modern in London


Some years back, there was a superb show at the Hayward Gallery, so we have high hopes for Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at the Tate Modern in London being a must-see.

It runs from 21 February - 27 May 2013 at the Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 and is described as being the first full-scale retrospective of the artist in over twenty years.

Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, it brings together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures, showcasing key paintings such as Look Mickey 1961 lent from the National Gallery Art, Washington and his monumental Artist’s Studio series of 1973–4. Trust me, seeing them all up-close is so much better than images on the web or in books.

The Tate is also hosting events around the exhibition too, including Wham! Print! Pop!, a curator’s talk and private view: Lichtenstein, a global Pop symposium and a study day on Lichtenstein and Pop.

All about that and the exhibition at the site, where you can also order the catalogue in advance.
