Over the course of about a hundred artworks (including prints, sculptures, tapestries and banners) presented in the form of a retrospective journey that reflects some of the themes most dear to the artist (objects, female figures, comic strips), visitors will find an astoundingly wide range of techniques on display.

Immerse yourself in this exciting world, which was ahead of its time in bringing to light a series of concerns about contemporary society, such as mass consumption and advertising.

With support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as well as prestigious museums, institutions and private collections, including the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation and the Sonnabend Foundation.
