Finch College Museum of Art, 1964. Item #3259
Saddle-stitched in wrappers, illustrated with b & w photographs including one of Brainard's, "Baby Doll Circle." Inscribed by Brainard at the photo to Pat and Ron Padgett. Padgett notes (Joe: A Memoir, p. 77) that Joe was "selected" to be in the show by Larry Rivers who'd recently noticed Joe's work in C Comics (1964). Seeing Joe's work at the Finch show, art critic John Gruen brought it to the attention of Charles Alan who offered Joe his first one-man New York show at the Alan Gallery later that year. Very good plus, cover a little toned. Wonderful association.
