February 1 – May 20, 2018
Organized by the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation in conjunction with the Crocker Art Museum
Curated by Scott Shields, Associate Director and Chief Curator of the Crocker Art Museum
This blockbuster exhibition and its accompanying catalogue* aim to present a comprehensive view of Diebenkorn’s evolution to maturity, focusing solely on the paintings and drawings that precede his 1955 shift to figuration at age 33. Included in the exhibition are paintings and drawings primarily from the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, many of which have never before been publicly exhibited. Together, these 78 drawings and 22 paintings offer a full picture of the young artist’s achievements.
