In the sixth episode of "The Picture" podcast, American painter Wayne Thiebaud speaks with writer and critic Michael Thomas and gallery director Philippe de Montebello on the occasion of the new exhibition "Wayne Thiebaud: Mountains 1965-2019," the artist's third solo exhibition at Acquavella Galleries.
Recorded in front of a live audience at Acquavella Galleries in New York, their conversation touches on Thiebaud's lifelong passion for teaching, his favorite dessert (lemon meringue pie), and the similarities in painting mountainous snowdrifts and mounds of whipped cream.
"Wayne Thiebaud Mountains: 1965-2019" is on view November 5–December 13, 2019, at Acquavella Galleries.
