Tom Wesselmann’s Icon of American Pop Painting

Paris | December 2018

Tom Wesselmann’s monumental Long Delayed Nude is an iconic pop American painting. In this episode of Anatomy of an Artwork, discover how Wesselmann crafts an intimate, almost filmic erotic scene that combines a ‘pop’ and ‘classical’ representation of nude, still life and landscape. The narrative fantasy is a highlight of our upcoming Contemporary Art Evening Sale (5 December | Paris). Click here to watch more video.
