Wayne THIEBAUD (1920)
Wayne Thiebaud was born November 15, 1920 and he is an American painter whose most famous works are cakes, pastries, boots, toilets, toys and tubes of lipstick. His family came from France and his last name is still pronounced in the French way. He is commonly associated with Pop Art because of his interest in objects of mass culture, although his works, executed in the fifties and sixties, therefore predate the works of artists emblematic of this movement. Thiebaud uses pigments and raw colors to paint his subjects, that he shadows with characteristic precision of the advertising era. It became also his trademark.
