Tom Wesselmann (1931 - 2004), was an American painter, sculptor, and collagist, and a leading figure in the Pop Art movement.

Wesselmann rejected 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 in which his subjects are depicted with flat forms and intense colors.

Parrish Art Museum Members at the $350 Contemporaries Circle level and above, are invited to join us for a tour of Wesslemann's New York studio. 

We will be joined by his widow Claire Wesselmann and other special guests who were close to the artist.
