The first full retrospective of Roy Lichtenstein’s career since the artist died in 1997 at the age of 73 arrives at the National Gallery of Art on Sunday. The 134-object exhibition will be sprawled over 15,000 square feet. Here’s a look at some of the works that will be featured, spanning his early pop paintings, his “Black-and-White” series and his Chinese landscape series, made in the artist’s last decade.
