A review of Richard Pettibone: A Retrospective and F. Scott Hess: The Seven Laughters of God and Other Paintings in the LA Weekly:

As a student at Otis, [Richard] Pettibone had seen Warhol’s legendary soup-can show at Ferus Gallery and Duchamp’s equally influential retrospective at the Pasadena Museum, which included his Boîte-en-Valise, a miniaturized greatest-hits collection containing reproductions of his paintings, assemblages and ready-mades. By the following year, Pettibone had churned out scores of immaculate, actual-size re-reproductions combining acrylic painting with a variety of cunning printing techniques — silk-screening Lichtenstein’s hand-painted mimicry of commercial offset Benday dot patterns, for example. After showing a stack of 85 Warhols to Warhol, he was introduced to an intrigued Leo Castelli, and soon found himself back home, commissioned to fill Ferus with copies of works from six Los Angeles collections.

  1. Not to be confused with fellow Angelino Raymond Pettibon.

  2. Indeed. I got quite confused when I first saw the review - kept reading Raymond for Richard.
