ED RUSCHA Untitled (The Artist's Hand), Original ink drawing dedicated to Tim Hunt (former agent for the Warhol Foundation) and his wife Tama Janowitz (bestselling author) 1994, Hand signed, dated and inscribed bound in vintage hardback monograph
Incredibly rare to find a completely unique Ed Ruscha drawing with such impeccable provenance.
This unique, whimsical and clever drawing by Ed Ruscha of his own hand - is hand signed and dedicated to "Tim and Tam". It was acquired from the Estate of Tim Hunt (former gallerist and agent for the Warhol Foundation) and the collection of his widow, Tama Janowitz (Warhol pal and 1980's literary figure and author of "Slaves of New York.") Ruscha's original drawing is bound on the first front end page of the elegant hardback monograph "Ed Ruscha Stains", published in 1992 by the Robert Miller gallery. This book was designed by John Cheim and features 32 lavish full page color plates, an essay by Peter Schjeldahl, a reproduction of the 1974 photograph of Ruscha by Narit Wilde, and a Checklist at the end. The collector of this work can remove the drawing from the book and frame it separately as a work of art; or keep it in the book and have it on a display case or coffee table; or, alternatively, open the book to exhibit the drawing in a shadow box frame which can be hung on a or displayed on a shelf. In excellent condition. Makes an amazing and memorable gift. A very special and unique piece with fantastic provenance; from a West Coast art star to two survivors of 1980's Manhattan.
Hand signed and inscribed to Tim Hunt and Tama Janowitz.
