Lichtenstein was a pioneer of pop art who believed the world of images could be reduced to abstract patterning. His work reflects the cultural and political changes taking place in America from the 1960’s onwards.
This exhibition at Hatton Gallery draws attention to the arresting, emotionally charged and ambiguous work from throughout his career. The works displayed showcase a key body of works on loan from the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.
The ARTIST ROOMS programme of exhibitions with partner museums and galleries enables access to modern and contemporary art of international significance in rural areas, small towns and major cities throughout the UK.
Exhibitions are happening throughout 2019 and into 2020 in venues large and small, the length and breadth of the country, from Dundee to The Isle of Wight.
Works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection can also be seen at Tate sites in London, Liverpool and St Ives as well as at National Galleries of Scotland sites in Edinburgh.
