ATLANTApix: Tom Wesselmann's Mouth

Tom Wesselmann's Mouth #15
Tom Wesselmann's "Mouth #15"
Originally displayed in an exhibition in 1968 in Kassel, Germany, Tom Wesselmann's "Mouth #15" today hangs in Atlanta's High Museum of Art.

Wesselman, 1931-2004, was an American artist who studied at Cooper Union for Arts and Architecture (establish 1859) in New York and began an illustrious career with the initial success of his his Great American Nude Series.

You will find Mouth #15 in the High's Modern & Contemporary Art gallery, near Andy Warhol's 10-panel Marilyn Monroe painting. 

Don't be fooled by the size of this photograph. The canvas that Mouth #15 calls home could swallow me whole!
