James Rosenquist: Illustrious Works on Paper, Illuminating Paintings
November 1, 2014
One of the most influential living American artists, James Rosenquist became well known in the 1960s as a leader in the American Pop art movement alongside contemporaries Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg. For more than five decades Rosenquist has created seminal work in a variety of media, employing printmaking, collage, drawing, and painting. This exhibition catalog presents over 35 examples from the artist's long career, including his earliest abstractions from the 1950s to his exploration and evolution into Pop Art as well as recent works that epitomize his distinct and powerful style.
Curated by Sarah C. Bancroft, co-curator of the artist's 2003 retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, Illustrious Works on Paper, Illuminating Paintings exemplifies the indelible impact Rosenquist has had, and continues to have, on American art.
