A rare interview with the late, influential American artist Roy Lichtenstein, one of Pop Art's pioneers, highlight this fascinating profile. 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, as he painted steadily throughout the '70s, '80s and '90s until his death in 1997. The breadth and depth of his work has confirmed his position as one of the world's foremost artists and this program examines Lichtenstein's long and unique career.
