This is the first publication about Cain, who died at age 37 having made fewer than 60 paintings. Focusing on Cain's car paintings, this volume illustrates the artist's working process, from initial collage to basic and then more complex drawings to the final large-scale canvas. The critic Jerry Saltz has called Cain's paintings "among the sexiest, strangest and most underrated paintings of the 1990s."
