Catalogue Note

Tom Wesselmann's career-long and often large-scale exploration of the female form is made intimate in the miniature 'Study for Nude Collage Edition,' 1970.  Gifted to the artist's close personal friend, the present work is an unadorned study for 'Nude Collage,' 1970, currently in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
