Wayne Thiebaud food paintings

We love these pre-pop era paintings from the 1950s and ‘60s depicting the kind of production line style food found in diners, bakeries and cafeterias. With his heavy use of pigment, sophisticated, exaggerated colors and well-defined shadows, Wayne Thiebaud’s work looks so modern, even today.

    Another fantastic month of beauties, Margaret. Those pears are a really a still life painting– I don’t know how you imbue such feeling into these food portraits.
