Tate Modern has announced that it will screen Roy Lichtenstein’s only film work, titled Three Landscapes, as part of the artist’s upcoming retrospective, opening latter this month. Filmed at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, the film was part of an ambitious project for Lichtenstein in the early 1970?s, but was quickly abandoned after the completion of one film.

”When he finished the project, in a way he lost interest. What fascinated him was his painting. It was the first time and the last time he used film.” Says co-curator Iria Candela. Via: AO ArtObserved
