No priority/international, except by arrangement. Richly illustrated with colour plates. "Drawings are conventionally thought of as handmade objects, on a flat surface, that can be hung on a wall. The works that Edward Kienholz termed drawings are, like his freestanding sculptures, assemblages of things found ready-made. They appeared as early as 1961, the year in which Kienholz produced the first of the room-sized sculptural tableaux that became synonymous with his name. The evolution of the drawings runs precisely parallel with that of the tableaux, stretching across the whole of his career, first as a sculptor working alone, and from 1972 in collaboration with his wife, Nancy Reddin Kienholz.Includes original text and an historical chronology by Nancy Reddin Kienholz, and an essay by Marco Livingstone, a London-based art historian, curator, and writer." - Publisher.
