Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints and Drawings
Long affiliated with pop art, this exhibition shows the expansive depth of Wayne Thiebaud's full body of work and marks his 100th birthday. Thiebaud's bright palette, iconic consumerist imagery and graphic presentation were well suited to the pop art moment that was starting to capture the nation's attention in the 1960s, and Thiebaud remains best known for his paintings of pies, cakes and other sugary treats. His style and use of paint seemed both remarkably lifelike and tantalizingly delicious.
