Claes Oldenburg

“Here we grow again…” The Jonathan Club recently enhanced its collection by acquiring a Claes Oldenburg (b.1929) print entitled Sneaker Lace in Landscape–Line State. This two-color lithograph (14 of 55), measuring 57 x 42 ½ inches, was created in 1991 and printed at the world-famous Gemini G.E.L. studio here in Los Angeles. Oldenburg is a Swedish-born American artist who was associated with the Pop Art movement. He was born on January 28, 1929 in Stockholm and his father was then a Swedish diplomat stationed in New York. In 1936 his father was appointed Consul General of Sweden and the family moved to Chicago, where Oldenburg grew up. He studied literature and art history at Yale University
