Cloud City: Wayne Thiebaud’s Quintessential Masterpiece


With its soft confection like clouds juxtaposed by the harsh slanting hills of San Francisco, Wayne Thiebaud gifts us this masterpiece in Cloud City. It’s picturesque, it’s surreal and yet it leaves us feeling a sense of optimism. In the episode of Expert Voices, Charlotte Van Dercook takes us on a journey through the eyes of Wayne Theibaud and his artistic vision of the City by the Bay. On 18 November Sotheby’s is honored to sell this powerful piece, Cloud City, in its Contemporary Evening Auction.
