Most widely held works by Tom Wesselmann
Tom Wesselmann by Sam Hunter ( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the founders of the Pop Art movement, Tom Wesselmann has created art in a variety of genres and media, from his early work in painting, collage, and assemblage; to his well-known series of pop paintings titled "Smokers" and "Bedroom Paintings" among others; and finally his most recent work, consisting of laser-cut aluminum and steel "drawings," often painted in color." "This volume traces Wesselmann's development and aspirations from his first collages of nudes in tight, patterned interiors, reminiscent of Vuillard and Matisse, to his recent explorations of novel ways of translating spontaneous doodles into monumental and beautiful metal "drawings" and paintings. Wesselmann's school experiences are discussed, as well as his reactions to abstract expressionism, and the influence of other artists, especially de Kooning."--Jacket
Tom Wesselmann : his voice and vision by John Wilmerding ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tom Wesselmann was often seen as the most unabashedly sexual of the canonical pop artists. Yet the blatancy of his highly stylized figures, in their cool, slick rendering, makes them subtle and opens up his images to multiple readings. This new volume with close to three hundred color illustrations covers the richness and wit of Tom Wesselmann's career up to his death in 2004 and brings him into the limelight he deserves." "Noted author John Wilmerding captures the spirit of the artist by interviewing family members and reviewing day-to-day journals. In doing so he gives a fuller understanding of Wesselmann's life, family, and working habits of the artist. He places Wesselmann's career within the history of the Pop art movement and discusses his lifelong dialogue with Henri Matisse. Like Matisse, Wesselmann was a brilliant colorist and draftsman and fused together the two great traditions of color and line."--Jacket

"Alongside Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg and Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann is one of the most significant representatives of American Pop Art, which achieved its international breakthrough during the early 1960s and has since attained a level of popularity virtually unrivaled by any other movement in the art of the post-war period. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1931, Wesselmann began working with collages during the early 1950s, incorporating found objects and elements borrowed from advertising. Since the early 1980s he has concentrated primarily upon his Metal Drawings and Paintings. Cut from aluminum or sheet-metal, mechanically or with the aid of a laser, these works transport the fleeting effect of underlying sketches and drawings in three-dimensional forms and luminous colors. This volume presents about one hundred of the most important works - many of them never before exhibited in public - representing all of Wesselmann's creative phases, thus enabling the reader to examine and appreciate the artist's work as a whole."--Jacket
