Richard Diebenkorn

Paintings and Works on Paper 1946-1952

March 2020



The distinguished American artist's early work in oil, watercolor, gouache, ink, crayon, and collage has never been shown in the northeastern United States. Many of the works in this catalogue were produced in the late 1940s, with their dark, angular forms invoking Surrealism and the fractured planes of Cubism. A scholarly text by Crocker Art Museum Associate Director and Chief Curator Scott A. Shields has been specially adapted from his Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings essay.
