Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series
'Seminal artwork from one of California's best-known artists is gathered here in this beautifully reproduced exhibition catalog' - Los Angeles Times
A handsome book all about Diebenkorn's most celebrated series, The Ocean Park Series
Recognised as a leading West Coast Abstract Expressionist in the 1950s, Diebenkorn turned his attention to figurative painting in 1955 and achieved equal success in this alternate style. In 1967 he returned to abstraction, and during the next twenty years would forge one of the most celebrated series: the Ocean Park series. This beautiful catalogue is the companion book to the first major museum exhibition to explore Diebenkorn's most celebrated series - The Ocean Park Series created from 1967 to 1988.
Featuring works—including paintings, prints, drawings, and collages—this catalogue captures Diebenkorn’s practice of working simultaneously in diverse media and provides readers with the first opportunity to explore the complexity of Diebenkorn’s artistic and aesthetic concerns in this body of work.
