As a trained poster artist, the painter James Rosenquist, who comes from a Swedish-Norwegian family in North Dakota, quickly connected to the pop art in America. He became one of its leading artists by using the techniques of poster art for his works. Part of his style was to use strange, tattered artwork on his canvas to contrast with his painting.

His vast, often meter-long paintings impress as much as numerous graphics, drawings and prints in smaller formats.
