Richard Diebenkorn. Etchings and Drypoints. 1949-1980.


First edition. White cloth lettered in maroon and colour pictorial dustjacket. Folio. Published in relation to a touring exhibition in America, with the artist's assistance, and including a catalogue raisonné. The main part of the book has a reproduction on each page, some in colour, although many of the prints were made in monochrome. Diebenkorn had been making prints for most of his career, many of the human figure, and others more akin to his well-known colour field paintings. A beautifully produced book.
