Tom Wesselmann (February 23, 1931- Dec 17, 2004) is considered by art historians to be one of the five most important pop artists, alongside Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rosenquist and Oldenburg.  Most famous for his 100-piece Great American Nude series of the 1960’s, Wesselmann is celebrated for his pop interpretations of female nudes.  Having declared that he had picked up where Matisse left off, Wesselmann created collage-like paintings of nudes in interior spaces, often incorporating textile patterns and everyday objects into the composition.  His paintings fetch millions at auction and are featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and in major museum collections internationally.
