Tom Wesselmann (1931-2004) studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and later at the Cooper Union in New York, where he graduated in 1959. Wesselmann became a founding member of the American Pop Art movement, although he also had a profound respect for the Abstract Expressionists. He was influenced by Henrí Matisse's achievements in the field of color, form and composition. Wesselmann's style developed by revisiting the fundamentals of classical art-historical subject matter, and applying the Pop Art æsthetic to these references. He is perhaps most famous for his found art collages and pop images of nude women, as in "Monica nude with yellow curtain". Wesselmann’s work has seen increasing auction values in the past few years.
