Library Journal - Library Journal
Ed Ruscha straddles an interesting line between Pop Art and the more experimental Minimalist art of the 1960s. This catalog for a large retrospective traveling exhibition of the artist's work follows his early career as he moved from Oklahoma to California and focuses on his important contributions (such as Twenty-six Gasoline Stations) to the field of artist's books. Such Ruscha icons as "Standard Station, Amarillo, Texas" and "Los Angeles County Museum on Fire" are highlighted, as are newer works (e.g., "Western") that see Ruscha moving toward a more impressionistic gray-scale palette. This includes an extensive chronology of the artist's life and exhibition record as well as a detailed bibliography. Recommended for larger collections of 20th-century art.--Martin R.
