Wesselmann Tom

Born: 23/02/1931

Deceased: 17/12/2004

The painter, graphic artist and object artist Tom Wesselmann belonged to the Greats of American pop art, just like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. His artistic inspiration came from eye-catching colourfulness and motifs he came across in the American advertisements of his time. Influenced by the presentation of American sex and star cults on posters, in advertising, on TV and in films, he found his artistic leitmotiv, the female act. His blonde, faceless models were presented in situations of daily life or in erotic scenes. Wesselmann created large format works and came to worldwide fame with his series “Great American Nudes”. Almost half a million visitors saw his paintings at an exhibition touring eleven European cities from 1993 until 1997.
