Ruckus Rodeo (Signed by Red Grooms)

New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1988. Pictorial boards. BOLDLY SIGNED BY RED GROOMS (in red marker, across the first page of Barbara Haskell's essay). A bright, solid copy to boot of the 1988 1st edition of this wild artist's book/pop-up book, with all moveable pieces in place and in excellent working order. Quarto, featuring elaborate pop-ups from "Ruckus Manhattan" and "Ruckus Rodeo". (From the back cover; "Ruckus Rodeo re-creates in book form one of artist Red Grooms' remarkable 'sculpto-pictoramas', as he has dubbed his endlessly popular walk-through artworks. Six pop-up panels depict the cowboys, cowgirls, Brahma bulls, bucking broncos, and all the rowdy ecitement of an American rodeo. Included is an illustrated essay on Grooms' life and work by Barbara Haskell, curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Ruckus Rodeo captures the creative genius of Red Grooms at his flamboyant best and is a keepsake for all who treasure his unique artistic spirit."). Very Good +. Item #19340
