R. CRUMB: A CONVERSATION WITH GALLERIST PAUL MORRIS ( 2009 )




A 5 minute dissection of the monumental workload that is Robert Crumb's BOOK OF GENESIS ILLUSTRATED. Most of the originals are on display in the UCLA Hammer Museum until Feb 7th 2010. It took Crumb 5 years to complete... gives me a headache even thinking about how someone could remain focused throughout the execution of such a task but the results are no less than stunning!!! The entire old testament deserves this treatment... unfortunately Crumb's not the man for the job as it's a lifetime's work and I can only imagine he's lived with holiness and hellfire and brimstone for a little too long at this point!!
