James Rosenquist (November 29, 1933 – March 31, 2017)
James Rosenquist began his career as a commercial artist, painting signs and billboards. This lead Rosenquist to create large scale works, incorporating images that were contemporary to his time. The Painting F-111 measures 86 feet and is designed as a continuous collage of images from the years it was first created (1964-1965). Rosenquist’s paintings use a simple combination of imagery usually taken from consumer culture. Though he is associated with the Pop Art movement, Rosenquist actually created his work separately from the other names active within the movement during the 1960s.
