Lichtenstein Fever

For the last couple of month, The Art Institute of Chicago has really pushed the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit. I was slow to see the show because, while I like comic books, I didn't feel there was much more to his work than that. I was very pleasantly surprised to be wrong. The comic book panel with thought bubble is only a part of this work. More than that, he is a master of form and composition. His subjects are witty without being corny and his design sense stands the test of time. Also, he too champions the humble lemon.

Do yourself a favor if you're in Chicago and see the show before is closes on September 3rd.
