About

A painting by Tom Wesselmann. "1962 Plus 35 Nude Sketch II" is an alkyd oil on canvas painting of a nude woman in repose executed in bright blues, reds, green, yellows, flesh tones and black by Pop artist Tom Wesselmann. Tom Wesselmann’s supercharged colors mirror popular advertising while the lounging female forms allude to Western art history’s classic figurative motif. A wonderful example of this synthesis is the 1997 painting 1962 Plus 35 Nude Sketch II. Here, the reclining woman’s eyes are barely visible beneath the surface of the paint, yet her lips are a bold red with a thick black outline. The hyper-sexualized presentation of the female body seems to address the consumer culture of Post War America – the commoditization of the flesh. Wesselmann’s dazzling paintings bring together elements of art historical tradition and 1960s imagination, creating a singular style.Signed lower left, "Wesselmann '97."
