Joe Goode, Edward RuschaNewport Beach: Newport Harbor Museum, 1968. 4to.; slender catalogue illustrated throughout in color; clasp binding. First Edition.
The first museum exhibition of Ruscha's (or Goode's) art work. It includes many of Ruscha's iconic word paintings of the 1960s. Introductory text by Ruscha's mother, well acquainted with both artists since well before they had achieved any wider recognition, conveys an attitude that these two are up to their usual mischief and mild astonishment that world is letting them get away with it.
