Description
Wayne Thiebaud
Penny Machines, 1961

Instantly recognizable for their sensuous texture and warm, luminous palette, Wayne Thiebaud’s images of cakes, pies, candy, and other ubiquitous store-bought foods gained him international prominence in the 1960s. His food paintings explore society’s fascination with, and ritualistic treatment of, certain culinary items; Thiebaud paints what he has called the “tattletale signs” of our culture.

Thiebaud’s formidable talents run to a wide range of other subjects, including figure studies, “aerial” landscapes, and vertiginous cityscapes, but he remains best known for his sweet-natured, pensive take on the sweet stuff.
