The Centre Pompidou hosts the first major retrospective of Roy Lichtenstein in Paris for over 20 years.
Although Lichtenstein (1923-1997) is regarded as a leading light of America's Pop Art movement in the 1960s, he is less known for his later studies based on other artists and genres from art history.
In the last years of his career Lichtenstein pursued more academic subject matter, making the full-circle journey from avant-garde to traditional. Curated by James Rondeau, the exhibition includes Lichtenstein's sculptures, as well as his interpretations of historic works and landscapes in the Chinese style.
It also features some of his classic works like Whaam! (1963), Masterpiece (1962) and Seascape (1964).
11.00-21.00. Tues closed.
