Bid InformationFor your convenience, the bid information on this page automatically refreshes with the most up to date data so you don't have to refresh/reload this page.
Minimum Next BidBid increments determine the lowest amount you may bid on a particular lot. Normally, bids must be at least one bidding increment over the Current Bid. However, podium, fax, phone and mail bidders submit bids at various times without knowing the current bid and must be on-increment or at a half increment (called a Cut Bid). Any podium, fax, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full or half increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full or half increment.
Internet bids are required only to bid the increment past the Current Bid, or more. Internet bids greater than one increment over the Current Bid can be any whole dollar amount.
It is possible under several circumstances for winning bids to be between increments. It is also possible for an existing bid to be outbid by less than a full increment, sometimes by only $1. This usually happens when two bidders feel that a lot is worth about the same amount, but one places an off-increment bid. Generally when this happens, the Current Bid was much lower than the high secret maximum bid when the off-increment bidder placed his bid.
For example: On Tuesday, you bid $1500 against Bidder A's Maximum Bid of $1000, raising Current Bid to $1100. Then on Thursday, Bidder B, seeing a Current Bid of $1100, guesses the final price and decides to bid $1501, outbidding your Maximum Bid by $1. You would now have to bid $1600 through Heritage Internet bidding or $1550 on Heritage Live (if available for the auction) to possibly win that lot. Next time, maybe you'll bid $1502 and outbid Bidder B by $1!
Number of BiddersThis number represents the number of individual bidders prior to the close of Internet bidding on each lot. An individual who bids more than once is still counted only once. During the live session, only the winning bidder is included in this number, although detailed records are kept of all forms of bids.
Reserve (If Any) Not Posted Yet:
Although many lots will not get reserves, this signifies that we have not yet posted any reserves to this entire auction. Reserves are usually posted approximately 3 days prior to the closing for Internet-only auctions, and approximately 7 days prior to the live session for Signature auctions. At that point, any unmet Reserve will become both the price shown (with an asterisk) and the Minimum Next Bid, regardless of any previous bids.
Consignor Has Not Yet Submitted a Reserve:
Although the consignor's agreement allows a reserve on this lot, the deadline for submitting such a reserve has elapsed. If consignor submits a reserve post-deadline and the item fails to meet that reserve, we may charge the consignor a higher reserve fee.
This lot is being sold without a consignor reserve. (Note: By law, consignors may still bid under certain conditions, but they are responsible for paying the full Buyer's Premium and Seller's Commission if they do.)
Reserve Not Met:
A reserve has been posted on this lot, but no bids have met the reserve. The current bid has been set to the reserve amount, and the next bid will meet the reserve.
Reserves have been posted for this auction, and there is a reserve on this lot that has already been met.
Lots bearing estimates and without Consignor Reserve shall open at Auctioneer's discretion (usually 25% to 60% of the low estimate).
Our Auction Results Archives now allow our members to make anonymous offers on items that may not be auctioned again for some time. Please note that the winner of this Heritage auction lot may or may not still own this item and may or may not be willing to sell.
Heritage retains 10% (minimum $40 per lot) of the total price as its commission (compared with a 12%-25% Buyer's Premium charged on auction transactions), from which Heritage absorbs all credit card/PayPal costs. This service is free to the buyer (no Buyer's Premium), includes a 7 day return policy, and protects the identity of both parties. Because no Buyer's Premium is charged on Make Offer to Owner transactions, auction consignment discount coupons are invalid.
Our software allows offers and counter-offers, but we suggest making your best offer the first time as most owners will not respond to low offers at all. You will receive a response or no-response email from Heritage within 72 hours.

Note: The extra increment won't be placed until the item is up for live bidding, so it is possible that you could be outbid by a bid placed prior to live bidding, such as another proxy bid, live proxy bid, mail bid, etc., which could result in your losing the lot by that one increment. For the same reason, it is also possible that a currently losing bid with bid protection placed could potentially win the lot once the lot is subject to live bidding and the Bid Protection increment(s) is placed.

Condition The gunpowder medium is in good condition overall and well adhered to the primary paper support. There are planar distortions throughout as a result of being restrained along all four edges by the rabbet of the former metal frame. There is yellow discoloration and slight yellow spots along all four edges of the paper (visible only when unframed). There is a 1/8" burnished margin on all edges resulting from direct contact with the metal rabbet. Four regions of surface abrasion are visible in the top left and bottom left quadrants of the background. These regions have been locally retouched. It is possible that these were done at the time of creation of the object. There is a crease in the top right edge approximately 3 ½ inches in length. The crease is the result of contact with the former frame rabbet. Small fragments of yellow pressure sensitive tape, possibly used by the artist as a masking medium, are visible in the angular regions of the letters. These are visible under the microscope. There is adhesive residue in the top left and right corners of the reverse of the primary paper support. The adhesive is yellowed and embrittled overall. There is a minor foxing spot approximately 1 inch from the bottom of the letter in the downward stroke of the letter "e". There are striations and minor cuts in the primary paper support as a result of the artist's working technique. The cuts and striations are located along the edges of the letters where the image was laid out and possible masking material was applied and or trimmed. Framed Dimensions 25.5 X 33.75 Inches
Ruscha, Ed:American painter Edward Ruscha was born in Omaha, Nebraska in December of 1937. He was heavily affiliated with the pop art movement, which was characterized by the integration of media concepts. Some of his peers included Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Phillip Hefferton. Not only was Ruscha a painter, but he was also a filmmaker, photographer, and printmaker. When he was growing up, he gained a passion for the world of Surrealism. He went to the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California, which is presently known as CalArts. At the institute, he had in-depth training in graphic design, painting, and photography. Ruscha was raised Roman Catholic. He had two siblings, a younger brother named Paul and an elder sister named Shelby. His father worked in auditing at an insurance agency. His mother deeply encouraged his passion and talents in the artistic realm. While Ruscha began his life in Nebraska, he resided in Oklahoma City for roughly 15 years. In 1956, he packed up and moved all the way to California, which is where he received his aforementioned artistic education. Ruscha's artwork can be found in prominent museums all around the globe. His work can be viewed at the Jeu de Paume in Paris, France and at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, New York, for a couple examples. LACMA (The Los Angeles County Museum of Art) in Los Angeles also features Ruscha. The museum boasts 300+ pieces by the artist. Ruscha has received ample recognition for his works. He was chosen as part of the Department of Art by the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2001. The Royal Academy of Arts in London gave Ruscha the distinction of being an Honorary Royal Academician in 2004. His works have served as a major source of inspiration for many contemporary artists, whether in movies, graphic design or architecture. Ruscha's artwork is notable for illustrating items that seem to be ordinary and mundane at first, whether gas stations or posters on the street.
