Catalogue Note

"In these paintings, Thiebaud satisfied an age-old principle of the still life tradition: that the artist discover some virtue, not in inanimate objects as such, but in the isolation of the object. Through this technique of isolation, Thiebaud invests his images with a significance normally denied them."
Karen Tsujimoto, Wayne Thiebaud, San Francisco 1985 p. 51
