TUBINGEN.- The Kunsthalle Tübingen presents the
largest Ramos exhibition in Germany and even Europe with 89 works on art on loan
from around the world. This is the most comprehensive retrospective worldwide
ever dedicated to the important American painter, Mel Ramos. Two anniversaries
mark this occasion, namely, the 75th birthday of the artist and the over 50 year
existence of the Pop Art movement of which Mel Ramos is a main representative.
This comprehensive sweep of his life´s work, which is characterized by
the subject of nude art, encompasses mainly paintings, but also preliminary
sketches, sculptures, and lithographs. All phases from the late 1950´s to the
present are represented by well-known major works.
