Wayne Thiebaud exhibition is a memorial that will leave you smiling

The late Wayne Thiebaud, who passed away on Christmas Day last year at age 101, was a formidable force in the mid-century Bay Area Figurative Movement, alongside David Park and Richard Diebenkorn, and made a place for himself in the New York and L.A. dominated Pop Art of the 1960s. Thiebaud didn’t consider himself an artist, though: simply a painter. The difference being, he said that art is something indefinable, while painting is easy to classify. The visceral experience of looking at his paintings, however, is complex — and fun.

Wayne Thiebaud obituary

Few artists can claim Willem de Kooning and Walt Disney as equal influences in their work. The California painter Wayne Thiebaud was one. Thiebaud, who has died aged 101, signed on as an “in-betweener” at the Disney Studios in Los Angeles as a teenager, filling in the backgrounds to Mickey Mouse cartoons whose figures were drawn by experienced animators. For the rest of his long life, he would be open in his admiration for cartoonists, and for commercial art in general.

For Wayne Thiebaud, happiness was a solid morning of painting in his Sacramento studio

Wayne Thiebaud was not Gary Cooper or Cary Grant — but in 1961, he strode through Manhattan and into my parents’ life as if he were. His arrival from Sacramento at the gallery of my father, Allan Stone, was one of dramatic caution. Wayne had the quiet elegance of a film star who had delivered the goods and would be leaving soon, after a visit to the Frick and Whitney museums.

Wayne Thiebaud, Former Disney Animator and Painter, Dies At 101

Wayne Thiebaud, a prolific painter and onetime Disney animator, has passed away. He was 101. His death was announced on Sunday by his gallery, Acquavella, but their statement did not provide details on the timing and circumstances of Thiebaud's death. As a painter, Thiebaud was part of the modern art school, but he approached his work less cynically than many of his contemporaries in that movement. Per The Hollywood Reporter, who first widely reported his passing, "Many of his painted images were outlined in neon pinks and blues that made the objects appear to glow. Shadows were often a rich blue."

Wayne Thiebaud, 1920–2021

Wayne Thiebaud’s paintings of cakes, bathers, landscapes, paint cans, pastries, and cityscapes represent a luscious American sublime. Calling him a “California painter,” as many do, would be like calling Albert Pinkham Ryder a “New York painter.” Thiebaud’s work is universal. His hallucinatory surfaces, uncanny perceptual intelligence, thick buildups of rich color, hard light, luminosity, tonal control, and Hopperesque remove create eye-worms that make you meld with the paintings, participate in how they were made. Following brushstrokes, lulled from surface to surface, you experience a release of internal rapture from form.
