TOM WESSELMANN (1931-2004)

 
Celebrated for his vivid use of color, grand presentations of the female figure, and skillful work in multiple media, Tom Wesselmann was one of the most influential artists to emerge from the Pop art movement during the 1960s. Originally planning a career as a cartoonist, Wesselmann quickly established himself as one of the driving forces of contemporary art in New York. Since 1983, Tom Wesselmann used enamel on cut-out steel to depict his loose and energetic, yet meticulous, sketches in the third dimension. Ranging in scale, the sculptural works are an innovative part of the artist’s oeuvre.
