Last quote by James Albert Rosenquist

There was Bill de Kooning, Franz Kline. Much of the aesthetic of my work comes from doing commercial art. I painted pieces of bread, Arrow shirts, movie stars. It was very interesting. Before I came to New York I wanted to paint the Sistine Chapel. I thought this is where the school of mural painting exists. You were painting things up close, like big chocolate cakes. In Brooklyn, I painted Schenley whiskey bottles two stories high, 147 of them over every candy store.feedback
