A Lichtenstein Retrospective at the Tate Modern
If you're old enough to remember the impact of Lichtenstein's work back in the 1960s, you'll be aware of how innovative and contemporary his comic strip art seemed. Even if you've never heard of him, and think he's just a place somewhere in Europe, I think Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern this spring could be like an injection of fresh air.

The gallery will be augmenting their own collection with pieces borrowed from America to give an overview of the artist's work that was originally influenced by the Abstract Impressionists but later came under the sway of comic strips and advertising imagery, and was coloured with his hand-painted Benday dots.

If you're still unfamiliar with Lichtenstein's work, prepare yourself to be amazed by some of his bright imagery.
