    "James Rosenquist first emerged as an important artist in the 1960s Pop Art scene. After working as a billboard painter and studying art in New York City, he achieved almost instant recognition when he displayed his monumentally scaled paintings of everyday consumer objects in strange, surreal juxtapositions, Rosenquist combined traditional draftsmanship techniques with the dreamy advertising imagery of post-World War II America. His paintings examined consumer culture and mass-media, signifying a reorientation of painting away from the gestural and impulsive Abstract Expressionists of the previous generation, and thus placing him among the preeminent founders of Pop Art. Produced in conjunction with the artist and the Gagosian Gallery, James Rosenquist: The Early Pictures examines the social, artistic, and cultural background of these seminal works. Rosenquist's collage studies that functioned as the blueprints for his larger works are published here for the first time. This collection of 76 illustrations is accompanied by an interview with the artist and an important essay that offers a privileged glimpse into Rosenquist's thought processes and the inspiration behind his early Pop paintings."
