Richard Diebenkorn Prints: Celebrating an Acquisition

Anderson Gallery 17
April 25, 2015October 4, 2015

Richard Diebenkorn (American, 1922–1993) held a lifelong interest in printmaking that began with experiments he made as a student at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute), and he maintained a steady output of prints from the 1960s until his death. A group of 160 prints acquired by the Fine Arts Museums in 2014 includes examples from this thirty-year period and demonstrates Diebenkorn’s intense engagement with printmaking processes, particularly etching.
