NYtimes James Rosenquist, Pop Art Pioneer, Dies at 83
Pop Art giant James Rosenquist’s work influenced generations from New York to Miami
William Acquavella, the New York art dealer, said that Mr. Rosenquist lost a significant amount of work in the fire.
“He just rebounded from it,” he said. “Another guy would have had a tougher time bouncing back. But he enjoyed working, he enjoyed creating things, and he enjoyed painting.”
Mr. Rosenquist also had homes in Bedford, N.Y., and Miami. Recently, he had been spending most of his time in New York City, Ms. Thompson said.
In 2009, Mr. Rosenquist published an autobiography, “Painting Below Zero: Notes on a Life in Art,” written with David Dalton. Reviewing it in The New York Times, Dwight Garner called it “a ruddy and humble book, lighted from within by the author’s plainspoken, blue-collar charm.”
