Digital Catalogue Raisonné
The Wildenstein Plattner Institute (WPI), in partnership with the Estate of Tom Wesselmann, announces the preparation of a digital catalogue raisonné of the works of Tom Wesselmann. The first installment will be published on the Great American Nudes series. In advance of publication, a publicly available searchable database of all works recorded by the artist’s Estate, which incorporates ongoing research for the forthcoming catalogue raisonné, called the Tom Wesselmann Digital Corpus, has been launched.
Parallel with this effort, the Estate of Tom Wesselmann, Almine Rech, and Gagosian are also pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Tom Wesselmann: The Great American Nudes. Edited by Susan Davidson, the monograph will be the first comprehensive publication dedicated to Wesselmann’s most famous body of work, made between 1961 and 1973. The book will include full color reproductions of each artwork, as well as related drawings, studies, and relevant works from associated series.
For collectors to confirm that a work in their possession will be included in the digital catalogue raisonné, please visit wpi.art to begin the submission process.
