American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein is famed for his works based on comic strips and advertising imagery shaded with his hallmark Ben-Day dots.
Bringing together 125 of the artist's paintings and sculptures, the Tate Modern is staging the first major exhibition devoted to Lichtenstein in more than 20 years.
The show includes key paintings such as Look Mickey (1961) lent from Washington's National Gallery Art and his monumental Artist's Studio series of 1973-4, as well as some little-known pieces, such as Lichtenstein's early abstract expressionist paintings and his art nouveau-inspired sculptures.
