Additional Details: Serigraph on heavy rag paper, published by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The serigraph features a striking image of a woman, named Monica, captured in a relaxed, reclining pose. This is consistent with Wesselmann's frequent depiction of the female form, characterized by bold, flat colors and sharp outlines. The use of negative space is notable, a technique Wesselmann employed to focus attention on the subject and enhance the visual impact. The artwork is rendered in bright, vivid colors typical of Wesselmann's Pop Art style. The simplified, almost abstract portrayal of the figure is both a nod to commercial art and a subversion of classical portraiture. The bold use of color and form creates a sense of immediacy and vibrancy, drawing the viewer’s eye and conveying a sense of modernity and dynamism.
