The PMCA proudly presents a survey of more than one hundred twenty works drawn from the oeuvre of the celebrated painter Wayne Thiebaud. With his penchant for dazzling sunlight and high-keyed color, and a gift for painterly, sensuous handling of oils and other media, Thiebaud’s paintings link high art with popular culture while conveying a sunny optimism that is quintessentially Californian. Although he is best known for his vibrantly colored paintings of bakeries and delicatessens, the artist has also specialized in Northern California landscapes, San Francisco cityscapes, and colorful beach scenes.  A variety of these paintings will be on display along with prominent drawings and rarely seen figurative works spanning his career.

This exhibition is organized by the Palm Springs Art Museum and curated by Dr. Steven Nash.

Support for this exhibition has been provided by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, Bel Air Investment Advisors, LLC., Simon Chiu, Michael and Barbara Brickman, Whitney and Susan Ganz , James Goodman Gallery, Community Bank and Maginnis, Knechtel & McIntyre LLP. In kind support is provided by Peet’s Coffee and Tea and Whole Foods Arroyo.
