Take a tour of Tate Modern’s Lichtenstein exhibition, with curator Iria Candela



Lichtenstein: A Retrospective is a momentous show, bringing together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures and reassessing his enduring legacy. The first full-scale retrospective of this important artist in over twenty years, it showcases such key paintings as Look Mickey 1961 lent from the National Gallery Art, Washington and his monumental Artist’s Studio series of 1973–4. Other noteworthy highlights include Whaam! 1963 – a signature work in Tate’s collection – and Drowning Girl 1963 on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Here, curator Iria Candela presents some of the highlights.


It is lovely and I do like the way that more modern urban artists such as Dface continue this style.

Wonderful paintings and I am sure this exhibition is going to be a great success.
