Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series
UNITED STATES
WASHINGTON, DC  •  Corcoran Gallery of Art  •  Ongoing
 
 

The Corcoran is the only East Coast venue for Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series, the first major museum exhibition to focus on the artistís most celebrated body of work. The exhibition features more than 80 works, including large-scale paintings, smaller paintings made on cigar box lids, mixed-media drawings on paper, monotypes, and prints.

Named after the Southern California beachfront community where Diebenkorn worked between 1967 and 1988, the Ocean Park series grew out of a fertile period in the artistís career when he abandoned the figurative style that had previously characterized his work. He went on to produce monumental, geometric abstractions formed of panes of luminous color. These powerful abstract investigations of space, light, and color evoke landscape and architectural forms as well as the sense of place that defined the California coast during this time.
