The Tate Modern and the Art Institute of Chicago have organized a retrospective of one of the most popular and controversial Pop artists of the 20th century, Roy Lichtenstein. The exhibition opens at the AIC today and runs through Sept, 3rd. The controversy about his work stems from his "lifting" images from 1950's and 60's comic books, enlarging them, and rendering them in paint. This part of his career is only the tip of the iceberg, as his work went in many other directions through-out his long career.
