Description

Volume 2 of this exceptional catalogue raisonné project compiles the unique works on paper that Edward Ruscha (b. 1937) made between 1977 and 1997, the artist's midcareer period, during which he achieved international renown. More than 1,000 works are documented, among them hundreds that have rarely, or never, been exhibited or published. Highlights include Ruscha's inimitable word and phrase works, made in organic materials, pastel, or acrylic; compositions featuring signature images (windows, ships, silhouetted objects and figures, and film closing credits); and drawings and studies related to important public commissions for the Miami-Dade Public Library, the Denver Central Library, and the Getty Center. Each work is catalogued with a beautiful color reproduction, collection details, full chronological provenance, exhibition history, and bibliographic references. Essays by Lisa Turvey and Gwen Allen complete the volume, providing critical frameworks and historical context for the art within.
