Description: Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné (Volume One: Essays and References)
In the decades following World War II, Richard Diebenkorn established himself as a singular figure in the history of American art. Because he worked both abstractly and representationally, rejecting arbitrary allegiances to any particular movement, his work is not easily defined or categorized. He hewed to a deeply personal vision, one characterized by an attachment to both landscape and the human...

Richard Diebenkorn, the only child of a West Coast family, was born in Portland, Oregon, in 1922. Two years later his father, Richard Clifford Diebenkorn Sr.—a sales executive with Dohrmann & Co., a prominent restaurant and hotel supply company—was reassigned to the firm’s main office in San Francisco, where they had lived prior to Diebenkorn’s birth and had always...

Richard Diebenkorn’s canvases, drawings, paintings, collages, prints, and a small number of three-dimensional objects, together created over a half century, function as a superbly coherent body of work.
