Richard Pettibone is one of the pioneers of Appropriation Art, the practice of quoting, copying or deforming objects or pre-existing works of art, which was developed by numerous artists in the second half of the 20th century. From 1964, in Los Angeles, he began painting his emblematic series of miniature replicas or copies of works by his New York contemporaries, true to the scale of reproduction of the images in Art Forum magazine, to which he had access.


Richard Pettibone was born in Los Angeles in 1938. At the beginning of the 1970s, he moved to Charlotteville, New York where he continues to work today.


He graduated from the Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles. His first solo exhibitions were held at the Ferus Gallery in 1965 and at the Leo Castelli Gallery in 1969. He has enjoyed significant retrospective exhibitions at the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art in 2005 and at the Laguna Art Museum in 2006.
