This rare Artist's Proof (inscribed in pencil by Rosenquist "for Artists" is an original, silkscreen with collage (with mixed media a Pop element of a belt) from the Deluxe Edition of the "Artists Rights Today Portfolio” done in 1975, an influential era in Rosenquist's career and Pop Art. The belt is an actual 3-D piece of a belt -- a real collaged element - and not a lithographed image. The work is hand signed, numbered and inscribed by James Rosenquist. Unframed, never framed and in fine condition with desirable deckled edges so it will look terrific when floated and framed. Classic Rosenquist mix of advertising, re-casting of everyday objects, collage and social commentary. Indeed, the (sub) text on the bottom of the detergent "Tide" read's "Tide's In, Dirt's Out" - taken directly from television commercials and ads for the product, but with a wry and subversive double meaning for artists - one that is perhaps quite apt today. In fine condition; unframed.

About James Rosenquist

Leading Pop artist James Rosenquist—who came to prominence among New York School figures like Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Willem de Kooning—is well known for his large-scale, fragmented works that bring the visual language of commercial painting onto canvas (notably, from 1957-60, Rosenquist earned his living as a billboard painter). In his use of mass-produced goods and vernacular culture rendered in an anonymous style, Rosenquist's work recalls that of Andy Warhol, while his seemingly irrational, mysterious pictorial combinations owe a debt to Surrealism. His breakthrough work, the iconic F-111 (1965)—51 panels that total over 22 by 24 feet—juxtaposes an American fighter plane with a Firestone tire, garish orange tinned spaghetti, and a young girl under a hair dryer.

American, 1933-2017, Grand Forks, North Dakota, based in Aripeka, Florida
