Lot Essay

This work will be included in the forthcoming Edward Ruscha Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings, Volume 8.

"There's no way of finding out why something interests me and it's better not to know. It can be nothing more than the shape of a thing […] Logic flies out of the window when you're making a picture, at least it does with me. And thank God that it does." – Ed Ruscha
