Catalogue Note

“I spend quite a bit of time looking at art in museums because that is for me one of the great ways of learning. I'll often go to a museum and draw, or sometimes I'll just go and sit and look at a paining for a fairly long time, sometimes as long as a couple of hours. Sometimes making little notations about it or just looking. I see the museum as a kind of bureau of standards setting criteria of excellence, in a way. Things that we have saved that represent some of the most interesting things about human consciousness. So in addition to all the pleasure I get out of simply going to a museum, I also use it as a great resource: I try to steal whatever ideas I can." Wayne Thiebaud
