Tom Wesselmann: La Promesse du Bonheur
(1000 items available)
Published on the occasion of the exhibition "Tom Wesselmann: La Promesse du Bonheur", held at the Villa Paloma, Nouveau Musee National de Monaco, this catalogue is a critical overview of a key American pop artist and an important opportunity to analyse specific aspects of his work: Victorian and post-Victorian sexuality, female agency, post war economic abundance, beauty, the erotics of anticipation, the politics of the gaze and strategies of indeterminacy.Every aspect of the book's design, including its more than 170 colour illustrations, is conceived to reflect on the artist's haptic, indexical painterly approach and his oversize scale system.
