Dean, Robert et al. ED RUSCHA: Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings. Volume Six: 1998-2003.584 pages. 4to, cloth. Göttingen, Steidl and New York, Gagosian Gallery, 2014.
This sixth volume in a projected series of nine volumes documents the 227 paintings and studies for paintings made between 1998 and 2003. This period inaugurates two major series--the Metro Plots, which diagram streets in Los Angeles and American cities, and the Mountain paintings. A third series, loosely grouped, takes books as its subject. As in previous volumes, numerous documentary photographs are included, as well as a selection of Ruscha's sketchbook pages and complete bibliographic references and exhibition histories.
