The sale focuses on a wide range of editions on paper. Nearly 100 artists are represented in some 200 lots, including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Gober, Jasper Johns, Walton Ford, Sherrie Levine, Matthew Barney, Brice Marden, Cy Twombly and Ed Rusha among others.

This group of silkscreens, Paintings, was exhibited first in Paris in 1999, then in Antwerp, Belgium in 2000. They are currently installed in the permanent collection of The Boca Raton Museum of Fine Art, Boca Raton, Florida.  The texts are directly derived from post card captions and serves to make concrete the potency of "word as image" as well as a range of typographic, printing and cultural concerns and notations of how we view and understand art. At the base of this group is a fascination with language and its presentation as a filter for understanding the visual.
