Inhaltsangabe: One of the founders of the Pop Art movement, Tom Wesselmann has created art in a variety of genres and media, from his early work in painting, collage, and assemblage; to his well-known series of pop paintings titled "Smokers" and "Bedroom Paintings" among others; and finally his most recent work, consisting of laser-cut aluminum and steel "drawings, " often painted in color. This volume traces Wesselmann's development and aspirations from his first collages of nudes in tight, patterned interiors, reminiscent of Vuillard and Matisse, to his recent explorations of novel ways of translating spontaneous doodles into monumental and beautiful metal "drawings" and paintings. Wesselmann's school experiences are discussed, as well as his reactions to abstract expressionism, and the influence of other artists, especially de Kooning.
Inhaltsangabe: Tom Wesselmann (1931-) was one of the most prominent Pop artists of the 1960s. Whilst in the army he began drawing cartoons and afterward studied art at the Cincinnati Art Academy and then the Cooper Union. It was after his first one-man exhibition at the Tanager Gallery, New York, that he became known as one of the leading figures in American Pop art. He subsequently abandoned abstract expressionism for collages and constructions in mixed media, producing works created from clocks, television sets and air conditioners to ressemble shop windows. He became well known for the overt erotic imagery of his series, Great American Nude, which became progressively more sexual during the 1970s. This monograph is both a visual retrospective and informed critical account of Tom Wesselmann's work.
