This is the first publication about Peter Cain, who died at age thirty-seven, having made fewer than sixty paintings. Focusing on his car paintings, this volume illustrates his working process, from initial collage to drawings and finally to the large-scale canvas. Critic Jerry Saltz has called Cain‘s paintings “among the sexiest, strangest and most underrated paintings of the 1990s.”
