Visit Wolverhampton Art Gallery to see ARTIST ROOMS: Roy Lichtenstein, an exhibition of works by one of the most radical and influential artists of the twentieth century and a leading figure in the Pop Art movement.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery is the first regional venue to host this newly assembled group of works by Roy Lichtenstein, shown as part of ARTIST ROOMS: a collection of over 1,600 works of contemporary art, established in 2008 by Anthony d’Offay.

The major exhibition brings together Reflections: Art (1988) and sixteen large-scale screen-prints, and has been made possible through the generosity of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.

Purist Painting with Bottles (1975) – from Wolverhampton’s own acclaimed Pop Art Collection – will also feature in the exhibition, alongside the celebrated early painting In the Car (1963) and the painted steel relief Wall Explosion II (1965), on loan from the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate respectively.

The show is on until 26 February 2017. More details can be found here
