Blonde Kite by Tom Wesselmann (after). This serigraph in colors on paper, bamboo sticks and rope was created in 1988. Numbered in pencil, from the edition of 300 measuring 26 ¾ x 21 ¼ in. (67 x 54 cm.). (The artist was commissioned to create a large-scale kite on the occasion of the Dragon Exhibition of the Goethe Institute in Osaka as part of a cultural exchange. This kite created by Tom Wesselmann for that purpose was built by the workshop for disabled children ‘Sazanka no le’ in Tkarazuka.)
Working across collage, sculpture and painting, Tom Wesselmann was a prominent artist of the Pop Art movement whose works often stylised the female form as well as capturing elements of American life and consumer culture. Wesselmann initially began as an illustrator of comic strips and men’s magazines but received acclaim in the art world for his Great American Nude series in which he depicts numerous patriotic scenes - such as portraits of founding fathers or a photograph of a typically American landscape - using a palette of red white and blue with occasional khaki and gold; the majority of the images were sourced from discarded posters and magazines. Working with a number of materials, including Plexiglass, steel and aluminium, Wesselmann is diverse in his creative process and developed the first artistic use of laser-cut metal; Dropped Bra is an example of his acclaimed coloured, metal nudes.
