Wayne Thiebaud: Works on Paper Art Exhibition


From June 29 to September 14, 2014, Napa Valley Museum will display an exceptional selection of prints and drawings from California Pop artist Wayne Thiebaud.  This is the first time Napa Valley Museum is hosting an exhibition of this iconic artist, and the exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces of Thiebaud’s work.

Wayne Thiebaud: Works on Paper was organized by Meagan Doud, Exhibition Coordinator at Napa Valley Museum and includes works on loan from the collection of the University Library Gallery at California State University, Sacramento.

About the Artist: Thiebaud played a seminal role in the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. He developed a national following in 1962 with his signature paintings of popular American food. His pies, cakes, ice cream cones, and other sweets quickly won the hearts of the public with their nostalgic imagery, iconic compositions, vibrant color and thick, textured application of paint.

While he made his reputation as a Pop artist, Thiebaud never remained bound within limits of that style. He considers himself a realist who has spent his artistic career exploring a host of traditional subjects, ranging from people to everyday objects to California landscapes and cityscapes.
