Known for his unabashed and brazen pop art nudes—or, perhaps, better known as the world's most famous unknown artist—Tom Wesselmann quietly became one of the leading exponents of American Pop Art along with Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol in the 1960s.
The exhibition Beyond Pop: Tom Wesselmann, organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is the first major retrospective to be presented in North America on the work of this artist, This book, edited by Stéphane Aquin—curator of contemporary art at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts—examines the deeply original body of work that blends modernity and classicism in a hedonistic celebration of beauty and desire.
