> DESCRIPTION

FAMSF proudly presents an exhibition of a major new acquisition: two sets of monotypes by the American artist Richard Diebenkorn. Created over two days in 1975 with the artist Nathan Oliveira at Stanford University, these 24 prints dramatically represent Diebenkorn's visual thinking with a progression from his iconic "clubs and spades" motifs to the abstract imagery of his "Ocean Park" subjects. The monotypes were created at the peak of Diebenkorn's use of Ocean Park imagery and were exhibited only once, in 1976. They are the first Diebenkorn monotypes acquired for the Fine Arts Museums' collection, made possible by the Phyllis C. Wattis Fund for Major Accessions.
