The exhibition catalogue covers the artist’s innovative middle years from the late 1950s through mid 1960s, the period between his celebrated early Berkeley abstractions and the Ocean Park series. During this phase of Diebenkorn’s career, he turned against the prevailing tide of abstract expressionism and returned to the possibilities of representational figure painting. During this period, he worked directly from a live model and painted still lifes and landscapes. All of these genres are represented in the exhibition catalogue, including drawings in crayon and ink wash, gouaches, and oil paintings on canvas and wood panel.
