Roy Lichtenstein

Lichtenstein: A Retrospective opened at Tate Modern today, bringing together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures (CLICK). Shown is his Whaam! (1963) It all looks terribly out of date to me, like 20th Century winkle-picker shoes. And why should Roy Lichtenstein's work be considered high art while the work of far better comic-book illustrators be regarded as low art? Admission costs a ridiculously OTT £14 for adults and £12.20 for silver surfers. Give it a miss, is my advice. Sorry, TERRA.
