While we were visiting Tate Liverpool we called in to have a look at the exhibition of works by the well known American “Pop artist” Roy Lichenstein on the second floor of the Gallery. One of the “Artist’s Room” series of exhibitions, it includes
20 works charting Roy Lichtenstein’s (1923–1997) early interest in landscape to his iconic pop paintings influenced by comic strips and advertising imagery
Works on show include his well known screen printing style paintings Whaam! (1963), which has recently undergone a restoration
and In the Car (1963)
Lichtenstein was interested in reflections and in his painting In the Car he’d incorporated reflections on glass in his composition and Waterlilly pond with reflections (1992) he’d printed on a stainless steel panel
I also liked a couple of works where he’d used a shiny plastic material to create a simple seascape, and, in the following example a Moonscape (1965).
and I rather liked his take on Monet’s Haystacks
