This fall, Washington State University's Museum of Art is showing more than 70 works by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. Entitled Roy Lichtenstein Prints 1956-97, the exhibit offers a comprehensive record of the artist's evolution. Lichtenstein explored commercial and comic book images and painted them in immense scale, utilizing bright colors, simple lines, and the dot patterns associated with newsprint reproduction. Although his work was controversial in the 1960s, it changed the way America looked at and thought about art.

The exhibit, from the private collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer of Portland, Oregon, continues in Pullman through December 16 before moving to the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle from February 25 through May 7.

If you can't attend the exhibit, you can still see it in a full-color catalogue. The Museum of Art has produced a 95-page trade book, Roy Lichtenstein: Prints from the Jordan D. Schnitzer Collection, with essays by the curators about Lichtenstein and his role in American art.
