Roy Litchenstein

Roy_Lichtenstein_Drowning_Girl

A long awaited retrospective has just opened at the Tate Modern and a fine show it is too. Litchenstein is probably the most accessible of modern pop art artists and few will not be familiar with his work but the show does expand nicely on the familiar themes. Quite a lot of space is given to his takes on modern masters which I am a little ambivalent about but the sculptures and simple but effective paintings of mirrors are a nice revelation. 

Its enjoyable stuff but unlike fellow pop artists of that era Warhol I find that it is relatively free of emotion and doesn’t draw you back for repeated viewings in the manner of Rachenberg

But do go and see.
