Ed Ruscha, whose work repeatedly defies common categorizations, is one of the most important artists of his generation. While at the beginning of his career he was categorized as Pop Art and later as Conceptual Art, today we can see in retrospect that one of the qualities of his work is that he has never committed himself to a particular style or medium. His artist books from the early 1960s are legendary. With these works alone, Ed Ruscha wrote art history and influenced subsequent generations of artists.
