This vibrant lithograph and screenprint by American Pop Art artist James Rosenquist, from the New York Portfolio, features a close-up image of a flower, obstructed by energetic, pixelated contours. Rosenquist's classic style layers fragmented images and shapes to create visual stories, allowing the viewer to arrive at their own interpretation.

Item #PTS21078

James Rosenquist was a leading figure of the American Pop Art movement known for his large scale canvases painted in the billboard technique with frequent references to Photorealism. Between 1954 and 1960 Rosenquist worked as a billboard painter, among the busy streets of Times Square. This experience of dealing with huge commercial images at close range undoubtedly played a role in his paintings produced in the following decade of the Pop Art era. Rosenquist’s monumental dilation of a billboard detail opened meaning and critique to the advertising image in American pop culture. Rosenquist is among the Pop Art masters, including Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and Robert Indiana. Pop art had its dramatic public debut in November 1962 when New York’s Sidney Janis Gallery had a show of new American artists entitled “New Realists.”
