Ed Ruscha Prints and Multiples

American, b. 1937

Indisputably one of the most iconic American artists of the 20th century, Ed Ruscha has built a formidable body of work by staking a claim on the deceptively simple intersection of text and image, superimposing elliptical phrases (or, often, single words) over West Coast landscapes to create prints and paintings that can be read instantaneously yet evade easy understanding.

Alongside artists like Robert Irwin and Billy Al Bengston, Ruscha was a pioneer of the 1960s Los Angeles art scene as part of the famed Ferus Gallery. His embrace of Hollywood vernacular and the open Western road have tied him as closely to the identity of L.A. art as Jackson Pollock is to that of New York.

Coming to California in 1956 at the age of 18, Ruscha intended to become a commercial painter but found himself drawn to fine art, over time being shaped by three galvanizing influences: Marcel Duchamp, Pop art and the movies.

Meeting Duchamp when the Pasadena Art Museum (now the Norton Simon Museum) hosted the French Conceptual artist's first U.S. show, Ruscha was especially affected by his use of "readymade" objects and imagery, rendered unfamiliar through unexpected titles or text. Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup can paintings, meanwhile, were shown for the first time at the Ferus Gallery in 1962, opening up new vistas for Ruscha. Movies, then, provided another inspiration through their use of title cards, placing graphic text over filmic shots — The End, for instance — for maximum impact.

Ruscha began his famous series of word paintings in the 1960s, depicting various views of the Hollywood sign and the logos of studios like 20th Century Fox, but also roadside views like the Standard Oil stations dotting L.A.'s freeways. Over time these became more abstracted, pinning ambiguous, free-floating phrases (Wall Rockets is a famous example) to natural vistas, scenes of highways, or monochrome backgrounds. Beginning in about 1980, the artist began using a sharp font he designed himself, called Boy Scout Utility Modern.

A master printmaker who also works across the mediums of books, drawing, photography and even film — in 2009 he starred in a movie directed by the artist Doug Aitken — Ruscha has been an influence on a staggering array of artists, including Stephen Shore, Christopher Wool and Anselm Kiefer.

Ruscha's work has been featured in dozens of exhibitions around the world, including "Ed Ruscha: 50 Years of Painting" at London's Hayward Gallery (2009), "Ed Ruscha: Made in Los Angeles" at Madrid's Reina Sofia in 2002, a 2000 retrospective at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, a survey of his works-on-paper at the J. Paul Getty Museum in 1998, and a 1982 retrospective that traveled to the Whitney Museum. In 2005 he represented the United States at the 51st Venice Biennale, and in 2009 he received a National Arts Award.

Once in a Lifetime (rare theatrical poster designed by Ed Ruscha in 1975) Framed
By Ed Ruscha
Located in New York, NY
Ed Ruscha Once in a Lifetime, 1975 Offset lithograph poster on thin board Plate signature on the side, to the right of the Moss Hart and George Kaufman movie slate; also bears Ed Ruscha's printed name and copyright Frame included: This work is elegantly floated and framed in a museum quality white wood frame with UV plexiglass Measurements: 24.5 inches vertical by 16.5 by 1.5 inches 22 inches vertical by 16 inches Publisher Music Center, Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum, Los Angeles, CA This incredibly scarce poster was designed by Ed Ruscha for the 1975-6 season theatrical production of the famed 1930s play "Once in a Lifetime" by the duo Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, at the Music Center, Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum, Los Angeles, CA. The play was a satirical send up of Hollywood as the first all-talking motion pictures replaced silent films. It was so cleverly written that the play continued to be produced throughout the rest of the 20th century. The poster has the printed text: EDWARD RUSCHA, followed by his copyright and the year (1975) on the front. Ed Ruscha is an artist whose entire career has been preoccupied with the theme of the fall of the American empire -- so it seems apt that he would design the poster for Once in a Lifetime, which mocks the fantasy of Hollywood and the American dream. More about the history and writers behind the production "Once in a Lifetime": Moss Hart and George Kaufman It's winter of 1928 and the biggest news in entertainment is the whopping success of Al Jolson in The Jazz Singer, the first all-talking picture. A down-at-heels vaudeville troupe—the ascerbic May Daniels, the fast-talking Jerry Hyland, and their slightly dopey cohort, George Lewis, the "best deadpan feeder in the business—decide to make their fortune by going Hollywood. The only problem is: they don't know what they're going to do out there. That's all right: no one knows anything in Hollywood either. The trio pretends to be a team of skilled vocal coaches and, with the help of Lotusland's greatest gossip columnist, Helen Hobart, they find themselves working for Herman Glogauer, the volatile producer behind Glogauer Pictures. Glogauer doesn't know what to do about his actors in talkies: "Things were going along fine. You couldn't stop making money—even if you made a good picture, you made money." Mistakenly thinking that dimwitted George is a visionary genius, Glogauer makes him head of production, and George obliges him by making the worst picture ever made. Yet, even this comedic satire has a Hollywood ending: George makes the studio a success despite himself and finds the girl of his dreams, while May and Jerry fall into each other's arms. Fade-out: the end. There had been very few plays about Hollywood—and even fewer satires—when the 24-year-old Moss Hart approached George S. Kaufman in 1929 with a first draft called Once in a Lifetime. Kaufman leapt at the chance to collaborate with the first-time writer and, although neither man had been to Hollywood, they had been inundated with enough fatuous material in the press and with enough dopey movies to take a crack at satirizing the film colony. Their gifts for poking Hollywood in its collective eye were so sharp that, 75 years later, Once in a Lifetime remains the granddaddy of all Tinseltown comedies (Singin' in the Rain borrows heavily from it) and is arguably still the best. Certainly as a gag-filled, glamorous, dynamic portrait of the idiocies of the film industry at its peak, this comedy cannot be topped. The road to Broadway was not an easy one, however, as Hart chronicled brilliantly in his 1959 memoir, Act One. Kaufman not only cowrote the script, but directed it as well and played the supporting part of the cynical and despairing East Coast playwright, Lawrence Vail. During the play's tryouts, Kaufman thought the show was a lost cause, but Hart prevailed and they roared into the Music Box Theater with a huge hit. The play's success made Hart's reputation (he would go on to play Vail in a Los Angeles production) and the partnership of Kaufman and Hart was off to a resounding start. In a gesture not often seen in the frequently ungenerous world of the theater, George Kaufman announced at the opening night curtain call that "80% of this show is Moss Hart." Once in a Lifetime opened at the Music Box Theatre on September 24, 1930 and ran for 305 performances. It was eventually filmed in 1932, although industry wags wondered how any film producer would have the guts to put it on screen. (Universal producer Carl Laemmle affixed his signature to a title card saying the industry had "the ability to laugh at itself.") The show's immense size kept it off the boards for many years (although an intriguing item in Variety in 1954 claimed that Hart was going to rewrite it as a musical spoof of 3-D for Phil Silvers), until the Royal Shakespeare Company produced a smash revival in 1977 with Zoe Wanamaker and Richard Griffiths. A 1978 Broadway revival at Circle in the Square, starring John Lithgow and Treat Williams restored the show's reputation in the States and many repertory theaters have produced it since, including the Guthrie Theatre...

Some Los Angeles Apartments - True, Stated 1st Edition of only 700 Artist Book
By Ed Ruscha
Located in New York, NY
Ed Ruscha Some Los Angeles Apartments (Unsigned), 1965 True First Edition Artist Book: Stated Limited Edition of only 700 7 × 5 1/2 inches Unframed A rare and elusive 1960s Artist Book. Makes a terrific gift. This is a TRUE 1965 1st Edition of only 700 stated copies. (NOT to be confused with the second edition in 1970 which was published in a much larger edition of 3000 and NOT to be confused with an eponymous 1990 Whitney Museum publication.) A must have for Ruscha Fans. SOME LOS ANGELES APARTMENTS. Los Angeles: Self-Published, 1965. True First Edition Printed Wrappers with Glassine. Original Artist's Book. This marvelous vintage 1965 48 page book features 34 black and white illustrations and is in surprisingly fine condition. "Some Los Angeles Apartments" is Ed Ruscha's third artist book - a wry yet heartfelt photographic survey of the subtle beauty of the post-war Southern California rental property construction boom. A spectacularly bright, most handsome example of the uncommon 1965 first edition (entry B3 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 105 of "From Fair to Fine 2", and page 226 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to seven hundred unnumbered copies. This is an exceptional example of this important little gem that is often confused with the 1990 Whitney Museum exhibition catalogue of virtually the same title. "In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist’s book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d’artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. Some Los Angeles Apartments, with its straightforward presentation of modern California domestic buildings, celebrated the vernacular architecture of Southern California." The Getty Museum "....It's perhaps fitting that Ed Ruscha - one of the central figures in late 20th century photography - does not consider himself a photographer. "I think photography is dead as a fine art," he told John Coplans...
