In April 1961, a young graphic designer and artist from the American Midwest named Ed Ruscha boarded a passenger ship to Europe, accompanied by his mother Dorothy and brother Paul. From Paris they set off on a road trip that would take in seventeen countries in seven months. Ruscha’s brother stayed for two months, and his mother for four. The remainder of the time he travelled alone. Among the places he visited were some of the continent’s great museums: the Prado in Madrid, the Louvre in Paris, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
