The works selected for this exhibition catalogue are intimately scaled. While Diebenkorn’s works are often evocative of his surroundings, these works provide an even deeper familiarity and access into the artist’s way of seeing. Common domestic scenes become contemplative studies: table settings, a telephone, a view from the window of the artist’s studio.

As with previous moves, each new surrounding would come to provoke a change in the artist’s palette and in the overall rhythm of his compositions.
