The Tate received a number of works by Ed Ruscha as part of Anthony d’Offay’s donation and other acquisitions. They total seven paintings, 23 works on paper and 111 prints.
The print total is about to rise as The Guardian announces:
The celebrated American pop artist Ed Ruscha is donating a collection of prints to Tate in what its director, Nicholas Serota, called “a wonderful Christmas present to the whole nation”.
Ruscha will donate 18 recent print editions and has also promised to give one impression of all future prints he creates in his lifetime.
Tate said the gift would allow public museums around the UK to stage exhibitions of the artist’s works on paper.
