Tom Wesselmann: La Promesse du Bonheur
Edited with text by Chris Sharp. Text by Sabrina Tarasoff.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Tom Wesselmann: La Promesse du Bonheur, held at the Villa Paloma, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, this catalogue is a critical overview of a key American pop artist and an important opportunity to analyze specific aspects of his work: Victorian and post-Victorian sexuality, female agency, postwar economic abundance, beauty, the erotics of anticipation, the politics of the gaze and strategies of indeterminacy.
Every aspect of the book’s design, including its more than 170 color illustrations, is conceived to reflect on the artist’s haptic, indexical painterly approach and his oversize scale system.
"Bedroom Painting #4" (1968) is reproduced from 'Tom Wesselmann: La Promesse du Bonheur.'
