Wayne Thiebaud
Wayne Thiebaud's bright palette, iconic consumerist imagery and graphic presentation were well suited to the Pop art moment that was starting to capture the nation's attention in the 1960s, and Thiebaud remains best known for his paintings of pies, cakes and other sugary treats. His style and use of paint seemed both remarkably lifelike and tantalizingly delicious.

In addition to painting, Thiebaudís work spans drawings, watercolors and prints. He also beautifully renders people in figure studies and fully realized individuals on canvas, and over time, landscapes have appeared with increasing frequency in the artist's paintings and works on paper.
