Wayne Thiebaud (American, b. 1920)
Valley Streets, 2003
With broad brush strokes in the blues, greens, and golds of California, Wayne Thiebaud created a dizzying street scene on a sunlit day. Industrial, residential, and civic buildings all contribute to the composition, along with city parkland and a backdrop of rolling hills. Thiebaud’s distinctive perspective and use of neon colors to produce shadows are evident in this fascinating 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.
