Roy Lichtenstein


Went to see the Roy Lichtenstein show down at the Hayward Gallery today, superb. All the classics were there, Brad and Whaam. Some of the stuff I hadn't seen before:

  • Grrrrrr - a dog that looks just like Toby from Halo Jones

  • His nudes

  • Some stunning japanese landscapes


Was really interesting to see the actual DC comics he copied the Whaam and Brad pictures from. Never realised just how literally he lifted things. Superb show.
