Diebenkorn at OCMA

Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series opened to rave reviews in late February this year at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, California. Having debuted at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and headed for the Corcoran Gallery in Washington (June 30-September 23), it is the first comprehensive exhibition of these exquisitely veiled, richly worked paintings inspired by the Ocean Park landscape in Santa Monica where the artist maintained a studio for many years. OCMA Curator Sarah Bancroft has assembled a magical selection of these famous paintings — plus prints and drawings! Don’t even think of missing it (through May 27)! We toured the exhibit with Pulitzer Prize-wining art critic Sebastian Smee, of the Boston Globe, so look for his upcoming review. A definitive 250-page catalogue accompanies the exhibition and should be considered a must for every devotee.
