Note: Mel Ramos was an American figurative painter and is considered an important proponent of the Pop art movement. His paintings, often depicting nude women, were a satire on how women’s bodies were used by mainstream advertising to sell products to male audiences. Though clearly aligned with Pop art in his appropriation of imagery from mass media and consumer products, Ramos calls his practice rooted in Surrealism and its emphasis on “absurd conjunctions”
