Though James Rosenquist experimented with sculpture, he found that painting and prints were the best formats for his collaged imagery. This lithograph, created as a benefit print for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, uses the vibrant colors, depiction of shiny surfaces, and strong graphic details that Rosenquist is known for. The title is derived from his interest in the Spanish explorer who landed around Tampa Bay, Florida, near one of Rosenquist's studios. Cabeza de Vaca was eventually captured by Native Americans, who dubbed him a sorcerer.Read Less

Pop Art icon James Rosenquist exploded onto the scene in 1960 with his vivid, large-scale paintings. Trained as a painter of billboard signs, Rosenquist abstracted familiar imagery from advertising and pop culture through adjustments in scale and irrational juxtapositions that owe a debt to Surrealism. Though fragmented and overlapping, his images of spaghetti, Marilyn Monroe, hairdryers, and detergent boxes created visual narratives of American culture, at times with a political message. His most iconic painting, room-sized F-111, is a powerful deconstruction of the American dream. Rosenquist influenced a whole generation of painters, including David Salle.

In addition to being widely exhibited throughout the world and completing several major commissions, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum organized a full-career retrospective of Rosenquist's work in 2003, and he received the Golden Plate Award from the American Academy of Acheivement in 1988.
