AFA Members are invited to a private tour of Wayne Thiebaud, Draftsman at The Morgan Library and Museum with the exhibition’s curator Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator and Department Head, Modern & Contemporary Drawings.
Best known for his luscious paintings of pies and ice-cream cones, California artist Wayne Thiebaud (born 1920) has been an avid and prolific draftsman since he began his career as an illustrator and cartoonist. Featuring subjects that range from deli counters and isolated figures to dramatic views of San Francisco’s plunging streets, Thiebaud’s drawings invariably endow the most banal, everyday scenes with a sense of poetry and nostalgia.
This exhibition is the first to explore the full range of the artist’s works on paper. Don’t miss this special opportunity to discover the wide range of Thiebaud’s production on paper, including early sketches, luminous pastels, and watercolors, and charcoal drawings before the show closes on September 23!
