James Rosenquist, ‘Israel Flag at the Speed of Light’, 2006, Alpha 137 Gallery

This terrific lithograph was created by the artist in 2006 in a limited edition of only 50 to raise funds for the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. It is a variation of Rosenquist's popular American Flag "Stars and Stripes" at the Speed of Light, this time using the colors and motif of the Flag of Israel - featuring the Star of David. In fine condition; unframed. Makes a great gift.

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
