Ruth Asawa / Arthur Secunda [Exhibition Brochure].

Los Angeles: Ankrum Gallery, 1962. First Edition. Folded sheet of laid paper (9.75 x 6.5 inches), with loose illustrated leaf. Brochure from a key exhibition in Asawa's career; her first in Los Angeles, at the Ankrum Gallery of Joan Wheeler Ankrum and William Chalee, which gained praise in the inaugural issue of Artforum; "surely among the most original and satisfying new sculpture to have arisen in the western United States." The loose insert reproduces black-and-white photos of two of Asawa's wire sculptures, then-belonging to Philip Johnson and Norman Rockefeller, with front panel illustrated after Paul Hassel's striking photograph of her Doors and Sculpture. The exhibition also featured work from Asawa's friend Arthur Secunda, with a color reproduction of his painting Night Fiesta to interior. Small bump to foot of spine, with minor toning to margins of front panel; a near fine copy of a scarce document.
