LISA YUSKAVAGE "KK" LITHOGRAPH, 2002
There is no shortage of artists who have both ironically and erotically depicted stylized and sexualized pin-up girls and buxom babes; Mel Ramos, John Currin and Tom Wesselmann are but a few that immediately come to mind.
Perhaps the incredible success Lisa Yuskavage (b. 1962) has experienced over the last twenty years or so, can be attributed not only to her distinctive aesthetic but also her choice of subject matter.
Yuskavage is known for her dreamy visions of fantasized females, always highly erotic, exaggerated and ambiguous. Is the artist celebrating the fantasy or mocking its absurdity and ubiquity.
Yuskavage is one of a handful of living female artists whose works have achieved more than $1 million at auction. Her works are notoriously difficult to acquire. We are excited to be offering this large-scale, small edition work that is iconic and accessible.
Her work can be found in every major American museum collection including the MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum (NYC) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) to mention a few.
