Latest Sale continues to report on fabulous finds from the Business Directory. This week we report on the Cultural Institutions category with a focus on Fine Art Institutions. Revered as one of the great post-war abstract artists, Richard Diebenkorn is an independent artist who brought back abstraction and figuration techniques into his paintings. Diebenkorn was dubbed as one of America’s “finest abstract painters” and for the first time in two decades, his paintings will be exhibited to a UK audience at the Royal Academy of Arts.
Fifty of Diebenkorn’s pieces have been carefully selected and curated to instill a superb reflection of the three distinct periods of the artist’s creative output. The first part of the exhibition showcases the artist’s initial experiments with abstraction from the early 1950s, when Abstract Expressionism was popular on the East Coast of North America during that time.
The second gallery will showcase evidences on how Diebenkorn’s work changed in style. From a dominance in abstract art, he later turned to figurative and identifiable landscape art. During this time, the usage of bright colours of the West Coast infused his work whilst he resided in California.
The final gallery sees Diebenkorn moving towards the adoption of yet another style, landscape art. This gallery is devoted to the artist’s Ocean Park Series which was painted in Southern California at the end of the 1960s.
The London exhibition, with an entry price of £10.00 and hosted by The Royal Academy of Arts commenced on 14th March 2015 and runs until 7th June 2015.
