Published with: the Crocker Art Museum
Celebrating the 100th birthday of one of America’s most respected and beloved artists, Wayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints, and Drawings honors a lifetime of extraordinary achievements across many genres. Best known for his tantalizing paintings of desserts, Thiebaud has long been affiliated with Pop Art, though his body of work is far more expansive, continuing to grow as the artist approaches his milestone birthday. Across the decades, Thiebaud rendered various details of American life through his art—from urban views and rural landscapes to clowns and household items—all the time continuing to explore the food subjects that made him famous.

In addition to the 100 paintings, prints, and drawings featured in the exhibition, this publication includes numerous other contextual paintings by Thiebaud, art by the masters who inspired him, and photographs of the artist with family and friends, taken over the course of his extraordinary career.

Arresting and appetizing, Wayne Thiebaud’s signature paintings of cakes and pies inspire the visceral memory of buttercream frosting. One critic said, “You don’t just want to look at his pictures, you want to lick them.” Now one of America’s most critically acclaimed artists, Thiebaud (American, b. 1920) has long been affiliated with Pop Art, though his body of work is far more expansive. In his Northern California studio and across the decades, Thiebaud has explored various details of 100 years of American life through his luminous, richly textured art—from farm country landscapes and “aerial” cityscapes to figure studies and still lifes of shop windows—all the while continuing to explore the food subjects that brought him international fame.
