Gagosian Gallery opens Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes this week, the first ever exhibition dedicated to this particular segment of the artists oeuvre. Lichtenstein’s experiments with still life began in 1972 and continued for almost a decade. Using his typical Ben-Day dot style, Lichtenstein turned the historic genre into a pop art experience – many of the 50 works on display taking direct influence from print advertisements.

Roy Lichtenstein: Still Lifes runs from May 8 to July 30, 2010 at 555 W. 24th Street, New York, NY.
