Ed Ruscha’s Iconic Work Highlights Sotheby’s Sale of Contemporary Art

Sotheby’s spring Day sale of Contemporary Art on May 15th, 2008, will feature Ed Ruscha’s ‘I Don’t Want No Retro Spective’, 1979, an iconic work which recounts a fascinating story about the artist and the American actor, Bud Cort,  (pictured above, est. $1/1.5 million*). Immortalized on the cover for Edward Ruscha’s monumental 1982 retrospective, which originated at the San Francisco Museum of Art and later traveled to the Whitney Museum of Art,  New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, ‘I Don’t Want No Retro Spective’ will be the Sotheby’s cover lot of the upcoming sale.
