This exhibition examines one of the most complex periods in the distinguished career of Richard Diebenkorn, exploring his shifting conceptions of abstraction and figuration through more than 100 paintings and works on paper. Emphasizing the formal evolution of these diverse pieces and their possible meanings for the artist, the exhibition features key works from the Fine Arts Museums' holdings, as well as loans from many prestigious public and private collections, including that of the Diebenkorn family.
