Influential avant-garde American composer and artist (1912-1992). Red ballpoint signature and inscription, "For Gertrud Limiberg, with best wishes, John Cage July 2, '86,” on an off-white 11 x 8.5 sheet. Cage has also added and titled a quotation from his "Variations I," which consists of several dots and intersecting lines. In fine condition, with a dent to the upper blank area, easily matted out. Cage's distinctive musical quotations have become increasingly scarce and much sought after.
