Cakes and Pies, 1995, by Wayne Thiebaud (American, b. 1920)
Oil on linen, 152.4 x 121.9 cm (60 x 48 in.)
Arresting and appetizing, Wayne Thiebaud’s signature paintings of cakes and pies inspire the visceral memory of buttercream frosting. One critic said, “You don't just want to look at his pictures, you want to lick them.”
Now one of America’s most critically acclaimed artists, Thiebaud paints a range of subjects in his Northern California studio—from landscapes of the surrounding farmland and cityscapes with dizzyingly steep hills to portraits of his wife and still lifes of bakery shop windows.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, Pomegranate’s 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
