Tate Modern will stage the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to pop artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923 –97). Organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate, this will be the first major Lichtenstein retrospective for 20 years, bringing together 125 of the artist’s most definitive works. In the early 1960s, Lichtenstein pioneered a new style of painting, executed by hand but inspired by industrial printing processes. This exhibition will showcase classic paintings such as Whaam! 1963 and Drowning Girl 1963, as well as sculptures, landscapes and previously unseen works on paper. Built on new research, the exhibition will reassess Lichtenstein’s work and his enduring legacy.
