This vibrant edition examines Tom Wesselmann´s important series of Standing Still Lifes, monumental works that are both pictorial and sculptural. Accompanying an exhibition at Gagosian New York, this catalogue explores nine of Tom Wesselmann´s monumental works made between 1967 and 1981. It marks the first time that the complete series of Standing Still Lifes has been exhibited. Each work in the series is comprised of multiple canvases shaped according to the outline of the commonplace objects they depict. Wesselmann was one of the leading American Pop artists, perhaps best known for his Great American Nude series. This attractive volume will be released with two unique covers, both printed in dazzling color on acetate, which will be shipped to customers at random.
