Still Life - Orange And Radio

Wesselmann, Tom (American, 1931-2004)


While Wesselmann's close-up Playboy-style nudes were his most controversial additions to the Pop art repertoire, he simultaneously explored assemblages and collages of household objects in a series he called the Great American Still-Life beginning in 1962.

Reflecting the three-dimensional nature of his still-life assemblages, this facsimile of a radio and an orange was created by embossing the images into the paper.
