Tom Wesselmann: Intimate Spaces
456 N Camden Dr., Beverly Hills, CA 90210
May 03, 6 PM - 8 PM — ends Jun 16, 2023
The exhibition features select works that have previously not been available for sale, including Great American Nude #53 and Smoker #8 - paintings that Wesselmann saved for his personal collection. An important figure in American Pop art, Wesselmann produced innovative mixed-media paintings that brought the energy of commercial culture to still lifes, interiors, landscapes, and nudes. Inspired by Henri Matisse’s odalisques, Wesselmann employed a saturated palette, clearly defined contours, and interlocking positive and negative shapes.
