Artwork Title: Hollywood

Hollywood, 1968

Ed Ruscha

Color screenprint, 56 of 100, 17 1/2 x 44 7/16 in. Ed Ruscha first drew the Hollywood sign in 1967. Since then, the familiar icon has appeared in many of his paintings, drawings, and prints. Ruscha has joked that the sign was “a smog indicator: if I could read it, the weather was OK,” but its recurrence in his art hints at his conviction that the landscape of Los Angeles is shaped by film culture.
