Wayne Thiebaud
b. /
Oil on canvas
60 in. x 48 in.

In the early 1960s, Thiebaud was acclaimed as one of the defining practitioners of Pop Art, and has continued to be considered one of California’s most important and influential artists. In the late 1970s, the artist concentrated on a series of San Francisco cityscapes that became a signature theme. Created from a combination of direct observation and memory, these paintings present a dizzying perspective of San Francisco’s extraordinary topography.
