8 × 8 in

Edition 489/1000
 
"Shiny Nude" - a dazzling limited edition, pencil numbered print features all of the hallmarks of the risque art arising from the sexual revolution of the 1960s and 1970s- saturated lips, full pubic hair, and the bottle blond so familiar to consumers of American advertising that preoccupied Pop artists like Wesselmann and his peers. This Wesselmann work was originally part of the famous Rubber Stamp portfolio, numbered 489/1000, commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art. It is numbered on the verso with the artist's name stamped by Unity Engraving, and the print is housed in its original stamped portfolio sleeve/envelope - see additional images - which is rare as the sleeve is often separated for framing. The print itself measures 8 square inches; the envelope that houses it measures 8.5 square inches.
