Lot description
EXTREMELY RARE! In a private collection since the 1970s. Rosenquist sketches rarely come up at auction!

Rosenquist created this study for his 1977 Calyx-Krater Trash Can Suite. The artist even misspelled the name of the suite on the preliminary sketch. The Pop artist's takes a critical look at contemporary culture and what artifacts will remain and represent us in the years to come; similarly to how a krater informs us on the ways of the ancient Greeks.
