With more than 240 illustrations and eleven insightful essays, this is the most comprehensive volume to date on this legendary artist from California. From the early text-and-image paintings to the more recent photocollages and installations, John Baldessari has continued to make art that addresses the social impact of mass culture, often playfully, and always astutely and incisively.
