Nigel Greenwood, Basle Art Fair, 1970s

Nigel Greenwood is sat looking serious at his desk at the Basle Art Fair in the early 1970s. Behind him are two works by Ed Ruscha, Business and Hot Shot. Nigel Greenwood worked with Ed Ruscha for over a decade and was the first London gallerist to give the Los Angeles-based artist a solo show. Their correspondences, including letters documenting Ed Ruscha’s exhibition of books and first London painting show, both hosted at the gallery, are held in the Nigel Greenwood Archive.
