    “For 40 years, Edward Ruscha has been an influential voice in postwar American painting as well as one of contemporary art’s most significant graphic artists. From his first prints and artist’s books made in the early 1960s to his latest projects, Ruscha has created a body of editioned work that is uniquely American in both subject and sensibility. He first began making prints in the late 1950s, and produced his first lithograph in 1962, which was soon followed by his landmark book, Twenty-six Gasoline Stations. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Ruscha continued to publish similar books, filled with photographs depicting commonplace items or locations that commented on the sterility and anonymity of the Los Angeles landscape. These works are now considered pivotal in the history of the contemporary artist’s book”
