Carl Andre is an American artist who helped pioneer minimalist sculpture and was the husband of famed and celebrated artist Ana Mendieta. This is a classic text piece from the early 1960s and is typical of his poems which are composed by selecting individual words from source texts, and then ordering them on the page according to simple and self-evident criteria, which, in this case, is by alphabetical listing. Aviator Charles Lindbergh deep fascinated Carl Andre whom he returned to as a source for his poetry. This work with its structured repetition like his famed sculptures reflect the minimalism and post-minimalism emerging in the 1960s and the 1970s including fellow concrete poet Christopher Knowles.

Karl Benjamin was a fixture of the American West Coast School. His work was featured in the "Four Abstract Classicists" exhibition in 1959-60 at the San Francisco Museum of Art (now the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) and the Los Angeles County Museum at Exposition Park (now the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) alongside Lorser Feitelson, John McLaughlin, and Frederick Hammersley. That exhibition was viewed as Los Angeles' answer to Abstract Expressionism as the West Coast artists' hard edge paintings offered an alternative style to the New York School's energetic brushwork and action painting.
