Roy Lichtenstein, the master of Pop Art, is 100 years old. The ALBERTINA Museum is celebrating the artist with a comprehensive retrospective that brings together over 90 paintings, sculptures and prints.

Thanks to generous loans from 30 lenders - international museums and private collectors - the most important works from his extensive oeuvre will travel to Vienna from all over the world, including the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the National Gallery, Washington, the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, the Louisiana Museum, Humblebaek, the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid.

The idea for this exhibition was born in collaboration with the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, which generously donated around 100 works to the ALBERTINA.

Roy Lichtenstein is known for his clichéd blondes, war heroes and comic figures with speech bubbles. With bright, vibrant colours, clear lines and the characteristic Ben-Day dots, which imitate the cheap printing technique of comics, he made his mark on the American art scene in the 1960s with his cartoon aesthetic.

The exhibition can be seen at the ALBERTINA from 8 March to 14 July 2024.
