Wayne Thiebaud, American (b.1920)_ Best known for his paintings of cakes, pies, pastries, and toys. Thiebaud was friendly with Franz Kline and Willem de Kooning, but avoided their Abstract Expressionism in favor of a figural style, most often grouped with the Pop art movement for his subject matter, the artist considers himself “just an old fashioned painter"

One of my favorite paintings by one of my favorite artists. Wayne Theibaud inspired most of my paintings in college. Pictures of this painting can't possibly do it justice.

If I were to collect art, it would all be Wayne Thiebaud.  A few prints of his pieces would be perfect in my kitchen :)

Mmm...blue shadows and steep hills by Wayne Thiebaud.  What is it about the light in his paintings that is so uniquely Californian?

1st grade cupcakes inspired by the Wayne Thiebaud. Students learned that his art can be labeled realism because it looks real. After learning about Wayne Thiebaud, students created their own yummy artwork of a cupcake. Students cut, glued, ripped and painted paper while creating these masterpieces! First graders also had to show an understanding what a pattern is while they decorated the bottom of their cupcakes.
