Delicious Metropolis Wayne Thiebaud


Two of Wayne Thiebaud's most celebrated bodies of work: desserts and cityscapes, are brought together in this new book.  Between the two, fascinating juxtapositions develop. The layers of a Neapolitan cake echo the shadows cast across a street in the late afternoon. The pastel hues of iced sponge cakes match California's candy-colored houses. Curators, critics, and artists guide the reader through the book via insightful bite-size essays. Thiebaud fans and newcomers will find a refreshing and accessible way to enjoy the oeuvre of this iconic American painter.
