Though Roy Lichtenstein’s comic strip–inspired compositions are some of the most immortal images of the Pop Art era, few realize the breadth and depth of his artistic career. “Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective,” opening at The Art Institute of Chicago on May 22, might just change that. The first all-inclusive exhibition of Lichtenstein’s work since he died in 1997, the show illustrates how he painted Asian landscapes, corporate logos and everything in between throughout his career. “The benefit of such a comprehensive approach is being able to see, in one place, the themes and subjects that occupied him for over 40 years,” says James Rondeau, one of the exhibit’s curators. “There is change, but also a staggering consistency in terms of both methodology and quality. Building connections among periods and works of art is only possible with an exhibition of this scope.” The retrospective comprises more than 130 works, including paintings, sculptures, sketches, mixed-media works and a few dozen pieces that have rarely been displayed for public view. If you won’t make it to Chicago in time, fear not: The show will visit Washington, D.C.’s National Gallery of Art, London’s Tate Modern and Paris’s Centre Pompidou between now and the end of 2013. Member previews, May 13–18; open to the public, May 22–September 3; 111 S. Michigan Ave.; 312-629-6100;
