A California artist whose work reflects a variety of styles from Pop Art* to Surrealism*, Mel Ramos painted pretty, sexy women as pinups or trophies as well highly realistic, almost trompe l'oeil* landscapes.  A typical example of his Pop style was Chiquita, oil on canvas, 1964.

At the height of modernism in the 1950s, when figuration almost died out across America, he and other California artists kept it alive during the 1960s.  Portraiture was essentially dead at that (showing 500 of 13566 characters).
