In the early 1980's Rosenthal, the famed German porcelain factory, began commissioning leading artists of the day to produce limited edition art pieces. Tom Wesselmann's (1931-2004) impressive creation for Rosenthal is a large relief plaque with one of his signature nudes reduced to a selection of abstract forms.
