Essays by Danilo Eccher and Slim Stealingworth.

Tom Wesselmann, best known for his series of Great American Nudes, begun in the early 60s and continuing still, is one of the more subtle of the American Pop artists, known more for isolating and abstracting items of the pop visual experience into a new two-dimensional context, than for layering it on, more and more and more. As might be guessed from the title of his most famous series, his imagery often partakes of the female body, or parts of it. This particular publication focuses on his latest works, made in 2002 and 2003, and includes recent studies and maquettes as well. A lavish introductory section, which recapitulates Wesselmann's life and work, offers further insight into a master of the Pop Art form.

Published by Prestel.

This book examines the work of Tom Wesselmann, one of the great American Pop artists alongside Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, and sheds new light on his distinctive contributions to art history.

Exploring Wesselmann’s steadfast focus on the fundamentals of art making, this generously illustrated volume casts him as an heir to both Ingres and Matisse, and a forerunner to contemporary artists such as Eric Fischl, Richard Phillips, and Mickalene Thomas. While famous for his Great American Nude series and still lifes of the early 1960s, Wesselmann consistently reinvented himself as an artist. He explored a variety of techniques including collage, painting, bas-relief still lifes, laser-cut landscapes, and three-dimensional nudes. Wesselmann’s forceful compositions exude cool objectification and rich sensuality, and exemplify the shift in cultural paradigms, between the old world and the new that began in the 1960s. Wesselmann also wrote country music, including the classic song “I Love Doing Texas with You,” which appears on the soundtrack to Brokeback Mountain. Including scholarly essays and numerous illustrations, this monograph reveals the astonishing visual impact and superb aesthetic quality of Wesselmann’s work.
