A Small Planet Being covered by Large Mirrors poster by James Rosenquist (Whitney Museum, New York, 1972)


An absolutely stunning large poster printed in 1972 for an exhibition at the Whitney, New York. It features the work of James Rosenquist (1933-2017).

Together with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein,  Rosenquist is one of the greats of American Pop art. From the late 1950s, he was instrumental in establishing Pop as a movement, changing our expectations of visual art. Rosenquist worked as a billboard painter of American adverts, which fed into his desire and ability to work on a monumental scale. In the  60s and 70s his art reflected a complex society of consumerism, technology, severe brightness and deep darkness - and peered into a complex future.

Approximate dimensions: 27 x 39 in; 68 x 100.5 cm
