Still Life with Blonde and Goldfish

Still Life with Blonde and Goldfish, 2000 by Tom Wesselmann is a mixografia print on handmade paper.  This print is pencil signed and numbered from the edition of 75 in the lower right.

One of the leading American Pop artists of the 1960s, Tom Wesselmann rejected abstract expressionism in favor of classical representations of the nude, still life, and landscape. He created collages and assemblages incorporating everyday objects and advertising ephemera in an effort to make images as powerful as the abstract expressionism he admired. He is perhaps best known for his “Great American Nude” series with its sensuous forms and intense colors. In the 1970s, Wesselmann continued to explore the ideas and media which had preoccupied him during the decade prior.  The 1990s and early 2000s saw the artist expanding on these themes, creating abstract three-dimensional images that he described as “going back to what I had desperately been aiming for in 1959.” He had indeed come full circle.
