Wayne Thiebaud’s lushly painted glimpses of everyday life—from a slice of pie to a steep San Francisco streetscape—are icons of American Pop Art. This exhibition spans the course of his prolific career, from the early paintings he made as a young student to the vibrant beach scenes on which Thiebaud, now 89, has been working most recently. The exhibition features many of Thiebaud’s most popular images and includes favorites from his personal holdings. Nearly a third of the works date from the last decade. Wayne Thiebaud is a tribute to this Bay Area master and the inspiring momentum of his life as a painter.
