Ed Ruscha: Course of EmpireEd Ruscha, whose 2005 Venice Biennale installation evoked Thomas Cole's famous 'The Course of Empire' painting cycle of 183336, has his work displayed in Room 1 of the National Gallery at the same time as Cole's influential work can be seen in the Ground Floor Galleries. Compare and contrast Ruscha's 'Course of Empire' showing the industrial buildings of LA with Cole's grandiose vision of classical civilisation. Two very different approaches to the cyclical nature of civilisation, both dealing with the theme of "progress, or the course of progress".
