TOM WESSELMANN "GREEN GALLERY EXHIBITION" POSTER, 1965
Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) is one of the most iconic, collected..and sexy American Pop artists.
Wesselmann arrived in New York City to study at Cooper Union with the goal of becoming a cartoonist.
After graduation, Wesselmann would exhibit collages alongside Jim Dine. One of Wesselmann's earliest paintings was an immediate hit - depicting a stylized nude in simple bold patriotic colors alongside collage elements.
By the early 1960s, although they were working completely independently from each other, Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, and Roy Lichtenstein were contributing to the nascent Pop Art movement. All four of the artists were appropriating images from advertising, comic books, and consumer culture.
Wesselmann was ambivalent if not critical of his association with Pop Art. By the mid-1960S he would be increasingly focusing on nudes, which would become his signature motif. The artist once said, “Painting, sex, and humor are the most important things in my life".
This Green Gallery exhibition poster features a playful image of Wesselmann peaking over a 1965 Volkswagen Bug which was a ubiquitous symbol of pop culture at the time and a frequent early motif for Wesselmann.
Completed in a monochromatic cherry red, this poster commemorates the last of three exhibitions held at Green Gallery (1962, 1964, and 1965) during a seminal period in Wesselmann's career.
