Monica Reclining

Monica Reclining, 1986 by Tom Wesselmann is a small intimate nude portrait of Monica, Tom’s chief muse.  It is a hand-colored etching on wove paper that is signed and numbered in pencil in the lower right.  The image dimensions are 6 x 8 inches, and the paper dimensions are 15 x 17 inches.  The framed dimensions are 16 x 18 inches.

Tom Wesselmann was an American Pop artist best known for his collages, sculptures, and screenprints that stylized the female figure. Often isolating segments of the body—red lips with a cigarette, a single nipple, or a stylish shoe—his artworks aim was to seize a viewer’s attention. “The prime mission of my art, in the beginning, and continuing still, is to make figurative art as exciting as abstract art,” he once said of his work.
