What Artist, contemporary
Description “Wayne Thiebaud was born in Mesa, Arizona in 1920, and his family soon moved to Los Angeles in 1921. Thiebaud’s characteristic work displays consumer objects such as pies and cakes as they are seen in drug store windows. Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects.” Breggruen Gallery
Why Because my brilliant grandmother, Mere, initially introduce me to Thiebaud’s talent. His imaginative, vertigo-inducing landscapes. Use of color. Interesting life story across California.
