Figures, 1955 - 1968
Van Doren Waxter is pleased to participate in Art Basel OVR:20c. The gallery's online project will feature a selection of figurative works on paper by Richard Diebenkorn, whose foundation the gallery represents. These innovative works were made between 1955 - 1967 and the presentation is comprised of never before exhibited works. During this phase of Diebenkorn’s long career, he turned against the prevailing tide of abstract expressionism and returned to the possibilities of representational figure drawing and painting. Working directly from a live model, Diebenkorn masterfully explores the intricate interplay within intimate interiors between formal rigor, studied observation, and diverse mark making.
