Tom Wesselmann (1931-) was one of the most prominent Pop artists of the 1960s. Whilst in the army he began drawing cartoons and afterward studied art at the Cincinnati Art Academy and then the Cooper Union. It was after his first one-man exhibition at the Tanager Gallery, New York, that he became known as one of the leading figures in American Pop art. He subsequently abandoned abstract expressionism for collages and constructions in mixed media, producing works created from clocks, television sets and air conditioners to ressemble shop windows. He became well known for the overt erotic imagery of his series, Great American Nude, which became progressively more sexual during the 1970s. This monograph is both a visual retrospective and informed critical account of Tom Wesselmann's work.

Sam Hunter is Emeritus Professor of art history at Princeton University.From Library Journal:
This inaugural publication from the first museum devoted entirely to the work of a postwar American artist will be of interest to students of Warhol for the ephemera it documents. The maquettes of now-famous Warhol images and the previously unseen artifacts give further insight into the character of the artist and the breadth of his interests. However, in light of such archival publications as MOMA's Andy Warhol: A Retrospective (LJ 5/15/89) and The Warhol Diaries (Warner, 1989) and the fact that he is one of the most written-about artists of the century, this is a tertiary work. Most of the essays contained herein focus on the museum itself-its conception, financing, architecture, and significance as well as its contents. Though stolid, these glimpses into the machinations of a museum make this a requisite for academic libraries supporting curatorial and museum studies courses. Otherwise, this is essential only for comprehensive Warhol collections. (Included is a spoken-word CD that, while fascinating, may present logistical headaches.)-Douglas McClemont, New York
