City Paper's review of Lichtenstein exhibit

"Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective" At the National Gallery of Art to Jan. 13; Roy Lichtenstein's comic-book Pop art gave him modernist cred, but he was a painter's painter, too.

Cudlin wraps up his review talking about comics, "One sour note: The names of the comics artists that Lichtenstein borrowed from in the mid-'60s—people like Tony Abruzzo, Irv Novick, and Jack Kirby—are not mentioned in the show's wall text..." and ComicsDC readers should check out his conclusions.
