      More About The Artist

      Mel Ramos

      Melvin J. Ramos (b. 1935, Sacramento, California; d. 2018, Oakland, California) spent six decades experimenting with Pop imagery and the female form. Internationally acclaimed for his ironic depictions of female nudes that are incongruously coupled with branded objects, Ramos’ work has been exhibited throughout the United States as well as internationally. Evolving from his early Pop portraits of comic book heroines in the 1960s, Ramos’ later series humorously explored the idealization and depiction of the female form in art, fashion and advertising. Ramos’ paintings are in numerous permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, amongst others.
