Bancroft, Sarah C et al. RICHARD DIEBENKORN. 192 pages, including 120 color plates. 4to, cloth. New York, Harry Abrams, 2015.
This catalogue for an exhibition (ending June 7th) at the Royal Academy of Arts in London documents the first solo U.K. show devoted to this artist in more than 20 years. The presentation of his work is divided into three major periods (1950-1953; 1953-1966; 1967-1988), which are discussed in detail in Sarah Bancroft's breezy and comprehensive introduction. An essay by Steven Nash explores how certain European painters impacted Debenkorn's development, and the last essay by Edith Devaney examines the centrality of drawing to his practice throughout his career.
