Tom Wesselmann, ‘Still Life with Blowing Curtain (Red)’, 1998, Lougher Contemporary

The late artist Tom Wesselmann spent his last years studying the still life, and modernized the Dutch Masters genre through his use of Pop imagery and bold colors. Inspired by Matisse, he created vibrant still life scenes which he collaged into his nude studies through his use of color, slight abstraction, and exaggeration of forms.

Bold, vibrant and typically Tom Wesselmann, Still Life with Blowing Curtains (Red) is a fine example of the artist's work. This print is sold framed, and in very good condition.

High res images are available on request, please contact the gallery with any questions.

About Tom Wesselmann

Tom Wesselmann is considered one of the major artists of New York Pop Art, along with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. Best known for his 1960s series “Great American Nude,” which featured flat figures in an intense palette of red, white, blue, and other patriotic colors, Wesselmann, in an effort to reject Abstract Expressionism, made collages and assemblages that incorporated everyday objects and advertising ephemera. In the early 1980s, he produced his first "Metal Works,” in which he shaped canvases and cut metal to create abstract three-dimensional images. In his final years, Wesselmann returned to the female form in the “Sunset Nudes” series, where the compositions, abstract imagery, and sanguine moods recall the odalisques of Henri Matisse.
