In advance of a major retrospective at Tate Modern featuring more than 160 works by Roy Lichtenstein (1923 – 1997), the Daily Telegraph art critic and BBC broadcaster Alastair Sooke examines the reputation and legacy of one of the great American artists of the twentieth century.
Whose cartoon style, characterised by his trademark use of Ben-Day and half-tone dots, pioneered the Pop art movement of the 1960s. To coincide with the exhibition, Sooke is publishing a new e-book about Lichtenstein for Penguin’s Viking Press.
