Gagosian Beverly Hills, 456 North Camden Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Presented here are seven of the pop artist’s seminal canvases, created over a span of two decades. Monumental in scale and ambition, these paintings—including “Still Life #29” (1963) and “Still Life with Blue Jar and Smoking Cigarette” (1981)—exemplify his pictorial innovations and clever recontextualization of the advertising vernacular through chromatic colors, anomalous compositions, and fetishism of everyday objects.
