 Tom Wesselmann
«Great American Nude #27»

In a series of paintings that capture typical American interiors, Wesselmann inserts nude studies, using classical poses from the history of art. Two of these paintings from 1962 make use of the television; in «Great American Nude# 27» only as a monitor image, applied in the form of a collage, and in «Great American Nude#39» as a functional television set. In both cases, the female nude remains oblivious to the presence of the television.
