A favorite artist of ours is none other than contemporary painter and printmaker, Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud (1920-present) is known for his nostalgic still lifes, panoramic landscapes and colorful figurative works. Thought to have helped influence the Pop Art movement Thiebaud created works that focused on common place items, Americana, and mass culture. Here is his piece Salads, Sandwiches and Desserts (ca. 1962).
