James Rosenquist provides his own commentary on the weapon made obsolete before its completion, intended as a "make-work" project for a war-profiteering middle class.
James Rosenquist. F-111. 1964-65. Oil on canvas with aluminum, 23 sections.
His version of the F-111 was displayed for many years in the lobby of Key Tower in Cleveland, Ohio. A note of interest would be that "F-111" was mentioned in a chapter of "Polaroids from the Dead" by Douglas Coupland.
