Lot description
Edward Ruscha (B.1937, Omaha, Nebraska) is an American Pop artist known for his paintings, prints, drawings, photography and film.

The 1970s were a very fertile period for the California artist. In 1972 he had his first major works on paper exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. He was chosen by the Venice Biennale as the focus of their graphics workshop and during this period he continued experimenting with different media.
