Image of the Day

William Claxton: Irving Blum on the Ferus Gallery boat with Peggy Moffitt (right) and friends, 1960 – from the book Ferus, a retrospective of the Los Angeles gallery established in 1957 by Walter Hopps and artist Ed Keinholz. Blum bought out Keinholz in 1958 and under his direction Ferus became one of the most important galleries on the West Coast, showing forward-thinking art by Wallace Berman, Ed Ruscha, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and others until it closed in 1967. The book, designed by Bruce Mau, is available directly from Gagosian Gallery, which held an exhibition in 2002 celebrating the Ferus Gallery.
