Art Brokerage: Richard Diebenkorn American Artist: B. 1922-1993. Richard Diebenkorn was born in Portland, Oregon in 1922, and attended school in Berkeley, California. He went to New York in the 1940's, where he met William Baziotes and Robert Motherwell, immersing himself in the Abstract Expressionist milieu. In the 1950's, Diebenkorn painted abstractions marked by strong compositions and gestural brushwork. Diebenkorn's work alternated between abstraction and figuration, but always with vibrant colors defining planar compositions. The figurative work is composed of large areas of color to form spaces into which Diebenkorn placed a standing or seated figure. Diebenkorn then turned away from imagery to the abstract Ocean Park series. These paintings are vertical, geometric abstractions of subtle line with visible evidence of reworking. The canvases are suffused with California light and color, and with coastal allusions to sky, ocean, seaside and sun. Each work is a self-contained chromatic universe, although every painting in the series is connected through color and compositional similarities.His most famous series of art was the Ocean Park Paintings. Art Brokerage has a collector who wishes to purchase a major painting from the Ocean Park Series. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
