Summary note:
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.
