a little lichtenstein.

The Art Institute of Chicago has a Roy Lichtenstein retrospective right now that I was lucky enough to see last weekend. Loved it. Who knew that Lichtenstein did landscapes? And fan-tas-tic ones at that? Also took in some still life work that appealed to me so much more than I was expecting it to — nice surprise. Think calling ol’ Roy the ‘pop art guy’ is an understatement.
