LONDON  •  Hayward Gallery, South Bank Centre  •  Ongoing
This is the first major retrospective by the American master of Pop Art, Roy Lichtenstein, to be seen in the UK for 35 years. Filling the whole of the Hayward Gallery, the exhibition presents over 80 paintings and drawings spanning nearly 40 years.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923 - 1997) shot to international fame in the early 1960s with his paintings based on cartoon characters - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Popeye - his comic strip scenes of wartime action and romantic melodrama, such as Whaam! and In the Car and his paintings of everyday objects culled from advertising, including Coffee Cup, Golf Ball and Radio.

The show was on view last autumn at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark. Roy Lichtenstein travels to the Reina Sofía, Madrid, in summer 2004
