Wayne Thiebaud: Confections, Boxed Note Cards

About the Artist

American artist Wayne Thiebaud experiments with compositions based on familiar subjects and his childhood memories, such as pinball machines and ice-cream cones, but while his subjects are light and fun, his approach to painting is serious. He uses still-life subjects to explore formal qualities of painting: color, line, shape, light, composition, and texture. His paintings bring up memories of birthday parties, family picnics, and holidays at home. At their root, his paintings reflect his deep affection and nostalgia for the rituals and traditions of American life.

Description

Instantly recognizable for their sensuous texture and warm, luminous palette, Wayne Thiebaud's images of cakes, pies, and other ubiquitous store-bought foods brought him to 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. The images selected for this note-card set concentrate on his skewed, good-humored, pensive take on the sweet stuff.
