Wayne Thiebaud
American • 1920–
Caged Pie
Oil on canvas • 1962
A native of Arizona, Thiebaud was attending high school in Long Beach, California when he had his first artistic employ- ment at the Walt Disney studios in Los Angeles. Initially trained as a commercial artist, Thiebaud went on to study art at several schools in California before joining the faculty of the University of California at Davis in 1960 where he began to create works depicting commonplace objects of mass culture akin to the emerging Pop Art movement. Prominent among these were still-lifes of desserts and confections such as Caged Pie, rendered with heavy impasto, bold colors and strong shadows in contrast to the flat, matter-of-fact treat- ment of objects in the works of most Pop artists.
