James Rosenquist -- who, in his early years, was an accomplished billboard painter -- became internationally known in the early sixties for his paintings incorporating visual matter usually found in large-format commercial advertising. Nomad, 1963, already in the Gallery's collection, is an example of Rosenquist's early manner, which reflected some of the idealogical and technical aspects of the Pop-Art movement of the sixties. Rouge Pad is, on the other hand, a very recent work, combining different images and techniques. A "target" or "spiral" on the right and a group of spike forms, almost covered by thick layers of acrylic in bright stripes, on the left, balance the central image: a round, cloth-covered pad, lightly tinted with red, which protrudes from a circular hole in the painting. Rouge Pad was acquired through a National Endowment for the Arts Purchase Grant and matching funds and is now on view in the Gallery. Incomplete Square (Red), 1975, a pencil and color pencil drawing by Stephen Antonakos (American, b. Greece 1926), is a gift of the Members' Council, Members' Gallery and Junior Group to honor the memory of Carl J. Franchi. Mr. Franchi, a member of the Gallery staff from 1956 and Building Superintendent from 1968 until his death on September 9, 1975, had worked closely with Stephen Antonakos on the installation of the artist's exhibition in 1974. ACTIVITIES The Education Department offers again this winter a series of Saturday Morning Lectures in the Auditorium at 10:30 a.m. The 1976 series will focus on 200 years of art in America.
