“Richard Prince takes sections of advertising images, whether on posters or in magazines, and presents them unaltered and without comment. The images he chooses are generally iconic and stereotypical, representing a mythical or imaginary America.

“…he is progressively making his obsession with popular culture more personal and accessible, and also more beautiful.” — Roberta Smith
