Synopsis: One of the founders of the Pop Art movement, Tom Wesselmann has created art in a variety of genres and media, from his early work in painting, collage, and assemblage; to his well-known series of pop paintings titled "Smokers" and "Bedroom Paintings" among others; and finally his most recent work, consisting of laser-cut aluminum and steel "drawings, " often painted in color. This volume traces Wesselmann's development and aspirations from his first collages of nudes in tight, patterned interiors, reminiscent of Vuillard and Matisse, to his recent explorations of novel ways of translating spontaneous doodles into monumental and beautiful metal "drawings" and paintings. Wesselmann's school experiences are discussed, as well as his reactions to abstract expressionism, and the influence of other artists, especially de Kooning.

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
