Richard Diebenkorn: inside the show

Published 15 April 2015

Take a look inside our Richard Diebenkorn exhibition in these short videos presented by the exhibition’s curators.

  • In these short videos, the curators of Richard Diebenkorn give a mini introduction to each of the three main groups of works represented in the show.

  • Early abstract works

    In the early 1950s, Abstract Expressionism was a dominant force in the US art world. Diebenkorn initially embraced abstraction, but his paintings were still imbued with a sense of place.

  • The Berkeley years

    In the mid-1950s, Diebenkorn made a surprising change of direction - leaving behind abstraction to embrace figuration.

  • Ocean Park

    The series of works for which he is perhaps best known, Richard Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park paintings mark “a glorious return to abstraction”.

    Richard Diebenkorn is in The Sackler Wing at the RA until 7 June 2015.
