Artist Profile Richard Diebenkorn

West Coast American painter Richard Diebenkorn came to define the California School of Abstract Expressionism during the early 1950s. His seductive colors and surfaces, found in works teetering between figuration and abstraction, are most commonly associated with Abstract Expressionism and the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
