Briefly traces Rosenquist's career, shows and describes his prints, and discusses his outlook and working methods

Blackwell North Amer
James Rosenquist is an internationally renowned artist who first achieved wide recognition as a result of his pioneering contributions to Pop Art in the 1960s and 1970s. Like many artists of his circle, particularly Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, Rosenquist has been fascinated with the visual language and ephemera of mass-reproduction. In Rosenquist's case, his interest was manifested in an art derived from popular imagery sources yet committed to the expression of his personal concerns as an artist and a printmaker. He has tested the limits of the medium in order to achieve, on the one hand, subtle nuances unique to particular techniques, and, on the other, the vast billboard scale that is his signature style.
This book traces Rosenquist's entire career, from his early work as a sign painter to the creation of what is thought to be the world's largest print, Time Dust, completed in 1992. An important historical text by Constance Glenn explores such contemporary issues as the role of the mass-media, the appropriation of its techniques and imagery, and the origin and demand for multiple images, as well as presenting in depth the artist's evolution as painter and printmaker. The 150 colorplates include - in addition to landmark paintings - numerous examples of previously unpublished sketches and prints, as well as many of Rosenquist's famous works, such as the great installation print F-111. The book includes a catalogue raisonne of the artist's 229 prints and an extensive bibliography.
