New Book Spanning Wayne Thiebaud’s Career Gives a Peek Into His Slanted and Heavily Shadowed Landscapes

Fun and Random


Bright, thick, and severe, Wayne Thiebaud‘s landscapes veer far from his well-known paintings of common objects and sweets. These works feature steep inclines and long shadows, providing a dramatic new perspective to seemingly banal landscapes and cityscapes.

Thiebaud was born in Mesa, Arizona in 1920 and during his early career spent time in the animation department of Walt Disney Studios and the Special Service Department as an artist and cartoonist in the Air Force. Thiebaud studied at both San Jose State University and California State University in Sacramento, and had his very first solo exhibition at the Crocker Art Gallery in Sacramento.

Although Thiebaud is often associated with the Pop art movement, many of his early works pre-date classic pop pieces and he personally rejects the association. “I don’t care for pop art at all,” Thiebaud told The Wall Street Journal last year.  “Pop artists just appropriate. They steal too much for me.”

A new book scheduled for publication this fall by Rizzoli will span the length of Thiebaud’s career, covering his work from the 1950s until today. The 94-year-old artist selected all the works in the monograph and also wrote a reflective introduction. The book will include his dessert, candy, and common object still lifes while also taking a look at as his landscape and cityscape paintings that tend to focus on the Sacramento River valley and San Francisco. You can pre-order the book “Wayne Thiebaud” on Amazon now, and see more of his work on Artsy.
