This landmark exhibition is the first to focus on the origins of one of the county's most important modern artists. It explores Diebenkorn's evolution from early representational landscape, to semiabstract Cubist and Surrealist-inspired work, to his mature Abstract Expressionist paintings from the Sausalito, Albuquerque, Urbana, and early Berkeley years, culminating in his return to figuration in the mid-1950s. Focused exclusively on paintings and drawings made in his formative years, it features approximately 75 works, most of which have never before been publicly exhibited.

This exhibition was organized by the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, in conjunction with the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation.
