Episode No. 325 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Wayne Thiebaud and curator and museum director Kathryn Kanjo.
Thiebaud is one of the world’s greatest living painters. The Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis has just opened “Wayne Thiebaud, 1958-1968,” an examination of Thiebaud’s early work and a look at how he developed his signature style and subjects. The exhibition was curated by Rachel Teagle and is on view through May 13. The exhibition’s excellent catalogue was published by the museum in association with University of California Press. Amazon offers it for $43.
