Tom Wesselmann (American, 1931 - 2004) Manner of: Smoker, 1975. Oil on canvas, signed and dated in marker verso, pencil erased numbers next to signature, framed.

Tom Wesselmann became one of the leading American Pop artists of the 1960s, rejecting abstract expressionism in favor of the classical representations of the nude, still life, and landscape. He created collages and assemblages incorporating everyday objects and advertising ephemera in an effort to make images as powerful as the abstract expressionism he admired. He is perhaps best known for his Great American Nude series with their fat forms and intense colors.

16 x 20 inches framed; 12 x 16 inches canvas.

Private dealer, United States.

Excellent, well preserved, condition; no notable damage or flaws; very light surface grime verso on the edges of the canvas.
