One of the most significant postwar American artists, Ed Ruscha (b. 1937) came into prominence during the 1960s pop art movement. The 60-year arc of his practice has encompassed painting, drawing, book-making, photography, and a broad range of printing techniques. While his methods have varied significantly, his poetic, image-text combinations have remained largely consistent. The Blanton presentation will debut a new body of work by the pioneering and iconic American artist.
