"Icing on the Cake: Selected Prints by Wayne Thiebaud"
2001-02-03 until 2001-04-22
Corcoran Gallery of Art
Washington, DC, USA

Wayne Thiebaud (b. 1920) is among the most important American artists of the later twentieth century. Museum visitors are enchanted by his vivid still lifes of cakes and pies, of lollipops and lunch counters. His brilliant palette and luscious brushwork flavor his signature depictions of everyday objects as well as the less familiar landscape and figurative work.

Though best known for his richly painted canvases, Thiebaud also has created a significant body of prints. Since 1964 the artist has produced more than 130 editioned prints, employing lithography, etching, aquatint, silkscreen, woodcut, and linocut. In the 1990s he also began to experiment with the bright color and viscous ink of the monotype process. The Corcoran Gallery of Art is pleased to celebrate Wayne Thiebaud's eightieth birthday with an exhibition of sixty of the artist's greatest prints.
