For this preliminary study for Untitled (Joan Crawford Says . . .) James Rosenquist used a cigarette advertisement featuring an image of Joan Crawford. The star allowed herself to be quoted with “Joan Crawford says . . .” to advertise the cigarettes. Rosenquist criticized this strategy of self-promotion and marketing, which was increasingly prevalent in the US in the 1960s. In Painting Below Zero. Notes on a Life in Art he described his collages depicting stars that he made in this vein as: “self-portraits, because by employing the same slick, glossy techniques they used in their own advertising and public relations I could mirror their self-inflation.”
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.
