Lot Essay

“Rosenquist’s contribution to the history of art is based not in his use of mass-media advertising imagery but in his dislocation of this imagery and in his rendering of it as hand-painted. If Andy Warhol wanted to transform himself into a machine, Rosenquist seeks to humanize images generated by an industrial consumer society by making them into painting.”

William Jeffett quoted in James Rosenquist, Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2001, p. 12.
