This profile centers on a rare interview with the influential American artist Roy Lichtenstein, one of Pop Art's pioneers, who died September 29, 1997.Some 30 years after his ground-breaking paintings first appeared -- both shocking and delighting -- the same works fetch record prices.But Lichtenstein's reputation did not depend on his past.He painted steadily throughout the '70s, '80s and continued into the '90s, producing a breadth and depth of work that confirmed his position as one of the world's foremost contemporary artists.The graphic style and bold scale of Lichtenstein's paintings are unmistakable (one commentator described it as "having Robocop come after you - you know it's not real but you can't get away from it)," yet the range of his work has defied easy labelling.

This program travels to New York to examine Lichtenstein's long career.He is seen working on a painting, and insights are given into this reclusive man by longtime supporters, such as gallery owner Leo Castelli, Diane Waldman, assistant director of the Guggenheim Museum, and Ingrid Sischy who, as editor of Art Forum and Interview magazines, is at the very heart of the New York art scene.

Lichtenstein himself is interviewed about his work, the Pop explosion and the history of Western Art.
