Wayne Thiebaud: “Confections” – Boxed Notecards

3 in stock

Description

20 blank 5″ x 7″ notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box

Printed on recycled paper

Instantly recognizable for their sensuous texture and warm, luminous palette, Wayne Thiebaud’s painted images of cakes, pies, and other ubiquitous store-bought foods brought him to international prominence in the 1960s. His food paintings explore society’s fascination with, and ritualistic treatment of, certain culinary items; Thiebaud paints what he has called the “tattletale signs” of our culture. Thiebaud’s formidable talents run to a wide range of other subjects, including figure studies, “aerial” landscapes, and eerily vertiginous cityscapes, but the images selected for reproduction in this notecard set concentrate on his skewed, good-humored, pensive take on the sweet stuff.

Contains five each of the following notecards:

Cake Window (Seven Cakes), 1970–1976

Candy Counter, 1969

Cakes and Pies, 1995

Suckers and Sweets, 2000
