174. Tom Wesselmann
Monica, 23rd New York Film Festival (1985)
Signed lower center
Screen print, 99 x 94 cm
Corporate collection, the Netherlands
Since its beginnings, the New York Film Festival has used some of the most revered visual artists and photographers for its prints, such as Warhol, Lichtenstein, Hockney, Sherman, Serra, and Wesselman.
This specific screenprint, created for the 1985 NYFF, which was hosted at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, presents Wesselmann in a different perspective. It showcases his mature phase, characterized by a more nuanced and serene style, in contrast to his metal sculptures from the same period.
