Mel Ramos: The Definitive Catalogue Raisonné of Original Prints
(1000 items available)
From a very early stage in his artistic career, Mel Ramos explored printed editions as part of his oeuvre. The earliest of these were still in an abstract expressionist idiom, but the artist began engaging with the medium in earnest in the mid-1960s, as the pop style for which he is famed took shape. Richly illustrated in colour, this title includes two essays by art historians Claire Breukel and Jeanette Zwingenberger, who analyse Ramos’ lifelong artistic engagement with the female nude. Pop art’s inspiration in consumer goods and mass media naturally led to experiments with commercial printing methods such as silk-screening, and Ramos was one of its foremost practitioners.
