This book examines the work of Tom Wesselmann, one of the great American Pop artists alongside Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.


While famous for his Great American Nude series and still lifes of the early 1960s, Wesselmann consistently reinvented himself as an artist, exploring techniques, such as collage, painting, bas-relief, still lifes, laser-cut landscapes, and three-dimensional nudes. His forceful compositions exude cool objectification and rich sensuality, and exemplify the shift in cultural paradigms between the old world and the new that began in the 1960s.


Including scholarly essays and numerous illustrations, this monograph reveals the astonishing visual impact and superb aesthetic quality of Wesselmann's work.
