This work of art is vintage Red Grooms -a feast for the eyes: to list several: the fire engine sooooo long it can't fit in the rectangular frame; the Dalmation chomping a woman's butt; that woman with wild curly grey hair has the face of a granny; the fireman in front wears a Charles Dickens Christmas Carrol top hat; the bold number 5 on the fire engine echoes The Figure 5 in Gold, famous 1928 painting by American artist Charles Demuth.

What a treasure! Thank you, Rizzoli New York for this marve
This is a coffee-table size book covering the career of contemporary artist Red Grooms through 2003 (he is still living as I write this.) The color plates are magnificent, bringing out the vibrant colors and helping you visualize the three-dimensional nature of much of his work. It is an important companion to the retrospective published in 1985.
