Joe Goode was born in Oklahoma City in 1937. He moved to Los Angeles in 1959 and attended the Chouinard Art Institute. First recognized for his Pop Art milk bottle paintings and cloud imagery, he was included—along with Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Ed Ruscha, and Wayne Thiebaud —in the ground-breaking exhibition New Painting of Common Objects at the Pasadena Art Museum (now Norton Simon Museum) in 1962. This historic exhibition was the first Pop Art show in the United States. Like California Summer #59, included in the live auction, this untitled work is from a series dealing with the sometimes apocalyptic violence of nature.
