The Pop artist James Rosenquist captures the hyperbright, supersaturated colors of commercial culture in his paintings. Kurt and Mr. Rosenquist tour a current retrospective of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The paintings there stretch back to the 1960's and contain a surreal montage of lipsticks and bleaches and dishes and fighter jets and car parts and cola labels. Kurt begins by asking him about his background as a billboard painter. Produced by David Krasnow.
