Video placeholder

Explore over 20 works charting Roy Lichtenstein’s (1923–1997) early interest in landscape to his iconic pop paintings influenced by comic strips and advertising imagery. The free display also presents Lichtenstein’s three-screen installation, his only work with film, which was made after spending two weeks at Universal Studios in 1969.

A rare opportunity to see Lichtenstein’s work in the north of England, It’s an exhibition not to be missed! 

This exhibition draws from the ARTIST ROOMS collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art, displayed across the UK in solo exhibitions that showcase the work of 40 major artists. The touring programme gives young people the chance to get involved in creative projects, discover more about art and learn new skills. Since 2009, 40 million people have visited more than 150 displays at over 75 museums and galleries.

ARTIST ROOMS was founded through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, when Anthony d’Offay gifted the collection to the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
