The Roy Lichtenstein retrospective is at its second venue: The National Gallery of Art, where it will be on view through January 13, 2013. The show originated at the Art Institute of Chicago over the summer and will travel to the Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou next year. The exhibition is accompanied by an excellent, readable catalogue, from Yale University Press. Amazon offers it for $25 off.
Exhibition co-curator James Rondeau was the lead guest on Episode No. 28 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. We discussed Lichtenstein’s intense mining of art history as well as how he zig-zagged away from the art-historical landmarks he chose to examine.
