Additional Information:Wayne Thiebaud’s education and prior career as a commercial artist undoubtedly informed his advertisement-like aesthetic and heavy focus on commonplace objects from middle-class America. Based largely in California for much of his career, Thiebaud has explored the dynamic landscape of California as a recurring subject in his extensive oeuvre. The present work, Night Farm displays the ability of Thiebaud’s fine lines to create a sense of depth, shadow and perspective. The dreamlike pastoral landscape has been executed in Thiebaud’s exaggerated pigments and tones, which he considers to be interpretation of pure “Americanness”.
The present print is a trial proof aside from the numbered edition of 35.
