The Tate Modern is one of my favorite galleries. It used to be a power house on the southern bank of the Thames. Now it’s a powerhouse art gallery. We’ve come to see the Lichtenstein Retrospective, but there’s lots of other great art on exhibit. We spent the entire afternoon here.
|We took the Tube to Southwark Station, shown above. This remodeled station is just a few blocks from the Tate Modern|
|The entrance to the Lichtenstein exhibit in the Tate Modern. We have tickets at a reserved time slot, but there’s no line. Nice.|
|I was really impressed with this show and I’m an even bigger Lichtenstein fan now than before. He took copying other people’s art to a level of genius.|
|Photography wasn’t allowed, but fortunately a couple of shots somehow appeared on my camera. I must have accidentally pushed a wrong button when I texted Robin to tell her where in the gallery I was.|
|This is a detail of a Matisse at the Tate Modern. I kinda like it, but COME ON!|

|Another Picasso. As you can see, non-flash photography is allowed in the permanent exhibits.|
