NEW
YORK, NY.-
From James Rosenquist, one of our most iconic pop
artists—along with Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and Roy
Lichtenstein—comes this candid and fascinating memoir. Unlike these artists,
Rosenquist often works in three-dimensional forms, with highly dramatic shifts
in scale
and a far more complex palette, including grisaille
and Day-Glo colors.
A skilled traditional painter, he avoided the
stencils and silk screens of Warhol and Lichtenstein. His vast canvases full of
brilliant, surreally juxtaposed images would influence both many of his
contemporaries and younger generations, as well as revolutionize
twentieth-century painting.
