Tom Wesselmann – Bedroom Breast Art Brochure

One of the final works that Tom Wesselmann completed before his death in 2004, Bedroom Breast is the culmination of the artist’s ingenuity. It includes his most celebrated subject matter while remaining entirely unique. There are no other Wesselmann oil paintings on cut-out aluminum in 3-D. Envisioning this uncommon fabrication for many years, he pulled from two studies to create the final work: an early sketch from 1967 and a 2003 maquette. As the artist’s response to a society that conflates the sensual and the commercial, Bedroom Breast is a suitable finale to Wesselmann’s distinctive charged visuality.
