Mel Ramos

Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings 1953-2015
At the beginning of the 1960s, Mel Ramos devoted himself to the central theme in his oeuvre, and developed the visual vocabulary that is so very characteristic for him: naked women adorning oversize advertising articles populate his colorful, two-dimensional oil paintings. Mel Ramos thus works with double entendre, since his works are formulations of an erotic fantasy that represents a fundamental pattern of marketing strategies in advertising. This publication records Mel Ramos´s entire painterly oeuvre, from the first works in the 1950s until today, hence demonstrating his enduring position in Pop Art.
