Published in conjunction with the exhibition "New Work: Christopher Wool" at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from July 6 to September 3, 1989 as part of the series by New Work to show work by younger and established artists. From the essay: "Perhaps for the occassion of this, his first one-person museum exhibition, it is enough to point out that Wool has made work that engages some of the most important issues of the historical part of twentieth-century art, and that he deals with what seem to be the most pressing questions of our own moment in a medium that other artists of his generation have found difficult, if not impossible: painting. Above all, Christopher Wool is a painter." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick.
