McNay Art Museum exhibition pays tribute to Californian artist Wayne Thiebaud, who died on December 25 at the age of 101
For curator RenÃ© Paul Barilleaux, the exhibition âWayne Thiebaud 100: Paintings, Prints and Drawingsâ at the McNay Art Museum captures the late artist’s passion for his work.
âOn my tours, I say subjects are an excuse for making beautiful paintings,â said Barilleaux, McNay’s curatorial affairs manager. âHe loves to paint on canvas – you can tell it’s something he loves, the act of painting. To me, you don’t see the work in the work. It just seems effortless.
