One of the image concepts for Rosenquist’s 1961 Rainbow was an advertisement for Alcoa Aluminum from Life magazine. The black-and-white ad featured a window with open shutters, which, in the collage, Rosenquist transformed into a new image with a puzzling character. On the one hand he supplemented the traces of dirt running down the side of the house with streaks of color, and on the other hand he sketched a broken window with an oversized fork next to it. His handwritten notes make it clear that Rainbow can be understood as an allusion to the not-always-intact circumstances found behind façades.
The facsimiles and the reproductions of the works of art by the American artist James Rosenquist (1933–2017) are issued by the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst in cooperation with the Museum Ludwig in conjunction with the exhibition James Rosenquist: Painting as Immersion. We thank the Estate of James Rosenquist for authorizing the edition. The sale proceeds benefit the museum.
