So, Tom Wesselmann‘s retrospective opened last week at the Denver Art Museum. Wesselmann’s considered a part of the Pop Art movement, but when collectors talked to him about Lichtenstein’s work in the 60s, he saw no similarities (insert loud laugh-crying emoji here…)
I mean, SURE, Tom, I appreciate your use of everyday objects as a part of the composition > critique on consumerism, but sheesh…you see no overlapping qualities?!
From top: Wesselmann, Warhol’s soup can, Lichtenstein’s still life.
Never mind, Wesselmann, you’re right. Totally separate thing going on…
