Wayne Thiebaud : A Retrospective

Acquavella Galleries, 18 East 79th St., NYC (bt Madison & 5th Ave.)

the exhibition includes paintings, works on paper and prints spanning the length of the artist’s career from the mid 1950s to today. Best known for painting everyday objects from gumball machines to bakeshop windows, Thiebaud uses tactile brushwork, saturated colors and luminous light for a range of subjects he describes as “people, places and things.” Although associated with Pop art of the 1960s, Thiebaud depicts subjects that reflect a nostalgia and reverence for American culture that sets him apart from the stark commercialism of Warhol and his contemporaries.
