Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004, born in Cincinnati, USA) became one of the leading American Pop artists of the 1960s, rejecting abstract expressionism in favor of the classical representations of the nude, still life, and landscape. He created collages and assemblages incorporating everyday objects and advertising ephemera in an effort to make images as powerful as the abstract expressionism he admired. He is perhaps best known for his great ‘American Nude’ series with their sensuous forms and intense colors.
Features a foreword by Almine Rech, ‘Reflections on Tom Wesselmann’, an essay by Anne Pasternak, and ‘Tom Wesselmann’s Post-Collage Works: “Acting in the Gap Between Art and Life”’, an essay by Brenda Schmahmann.
