Roy Lichtenstein’s work is so cool.
After a stint in the US, then a few months in London at the Tate Modern, the Roy Lichtenstein pop art pieces finally made their way to Paris. The exhibit is a comprehensive display of his work throughout the years and provides really interesting historical and biographical information about the pieces and Lichtenstein. I was impressed by the variety of works in the collection and loved seeing his most famous pieces in person. It’s a very popular exhibit, so make sure to set aside about two hours to make your way through. There’s a lot to read and to see!
In town until November 4, 2013, this is not a show to miss. The museum is open from Wednesday to Monday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (“nocturnes” on Thursday until 11 p.m.), so there is plenty of time to check it out. Also, you can download an app for the visit, which provides tons of information about the pieces and the very talented American artist.
