Centre Pompidou focuses on Pop Art with the biggest exhibit of works by Roy Lichtenstein in the last 20 years. The artist is one of the most important figures of Pop Art, along with Andy Warhol. His seemingly artificial paintings are actually the fruit of his research into popular culture, advertising of the 50’s through 70’s, and comics. His goal was to make his works look generic while leaving no personal artistic imprint. From his first masterpieces, such as Look Mickey, Master Piece and Crying Girl, you will be taken through a whirlwind of abstract works, with primary colors and cartoons. A must-see retrospective!
