Many Pop artists’ lives were intimately entwined with photography, and photographic images of many Pop artists became highly sought-after artworks in their own right, driving the career of numerous photographers in the 1960s and '70s.
Stepping back in time, candid shots capture Pop artists Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Robert Indiana in their studios and galleries, often in the creative process. The images offer intimate and revealing moments of introspection, experimentation and engagement with the work. These rare portraits resonate with the same creative energy each of these great artists brought to the world and are now seen as important documents in the evolution of art history.
The exhibition at Rosenbaum Contemporary complements a similarly titled exhibition being held concurrently at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, July 2 through September 7, 2008. (Select images at the museum exhibition will also available to collectors through Rosenbaum Contemporary. For more information please contact 561-994-9180.)
