Shiny Nude by Tom Wessleman
The American artist was one of the leading American Pop artists of the 1960s. Departing from Abstract Expressionism, he explored classical representations of the nude, still life, and landscape, while incorporating everyday objects and advertising ephemera.
Women were a constant source of inspiration for Wesselmann. Some of his most famous series channel the brazen energy of American advertising and feature flat, faceless female figures whom the artist often situated amongst colorful backgrounds.
Today, Wessleman’s art is highly recognized and represented in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, among other institutions.
