In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, we invite staff members, artists, and special guests to share personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, artist Ed Ruscha, the subject of a major MoMA retrospective, provides a look into how Johannes Theodor Baargeld (Alfred Emanuel Ferdinand Gruenwald)’s multidimensional drawing Untitled (Beetles) inspired Ruscha’s unconventional approach to art.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each month. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
