pop artist tom wesselman

i am sad to hear of the death of tom wesselman.

he really embraced the pop art aesthetic and created some beautiful images.

although i did not feel a personal passion for his works as i have for some other artists, it is a day to remember when an artist listed in so many textbooks and represented in so many museums fufulls his legacy.

a good article about his life and works in the new york times arts section, and a good assortment of images when you 'image'-google his name.
