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 (American, b. 1920) paints what he has called the "tattletale signs" of our culture. Thiebaud's formidable talents run to a wide range of other subjects, including figure studies, "aerial" landscapes, and eerily vertiginous cityscapes, but the images selected for reproduction in this notecard set concentrate on his skewed, good-humored, pensive take on the sweet stuff.
