No doubt, you’ve seen the advertisements for the incredible Chihuly blown glass exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston going on now through August 7th, but did you know there is also a brand new art exhibit that just opened Sunday?

Featuring the later works of well-known Pop Art painter Roy Lichtenstein, the ten painting exhibition showcases Lichtenstein’s work that draws on the masterpieces of impressionist Claude Monet’s iconic Rouen Cathedral series. In this series, Monet “painstakingly built up stroke after stroke into superb effects of sunlight playing on the stone tracery of the Gothic church,” displaying the façade of Rouen Cathedral between 1892 and 1893. Employing a dot pattern silk screened over a ground color, Lichtenstein creates a modern interpretation of Monet’s classic works.
