James Rosenquist

James Rosenquist came to prominence among New York Schoo lPop Art figures like Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg is well known for his large-scale, fragmented works that bring the visual language of commercial painting onto canvas, from 1957-60, Rosenquist earned his living as a billboard painter. In his use of mass-produced goods and vernacular culture rendered in an anonymous style, Rosenquist's work recalls that of Andy Warhol, while his seemingly irrational, mysterious pictorial combinations owe a debt to Surrealism. His breakthrough work, the iconic F-111 (1965), 51 panels that total over 22 by 24 feet, in the collection of MoMA, juxtaposes an American fighter plane with a Firestone tire, garish orange tinned spaghetti, and a young girl under a hair dryer.
