April 3, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

One of the most recognizable artists of the Pop Art movement, James Rosenquist passed away on March 31, 2017, at the age of 83. Rosenquist resisted being categorized as a “Pop Artist” and wrote in his 2009 autobiography Painting Below Zero: Notes on a Life in Art: “Pop Art. I’ve never cared for the term, but after half a century of being described as a pop artist I’m resigned to it. Still, I don’t know what pop art means, to tell you the truth.”
