      EVENT DETAILS
      Exhibit - Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series

      The first major museum exhibition to focus on the artist's most celebrated series, made between 1967 and 1988. The Corcoran - the only East Coast venue - will showcase more than 80 works, including large-scale paintings, smaller paintings made on cigar box lids, mixed-media drawings on paper, monotypes, and prints. Named after the Southern California beachfront community where Diebenkorn worked between 1967 and 1988, the Ocean Park series grew out of a fertile period in the artist’s career when he abandoned the figurative style that had previously characterized his work. He went on to produce monumental, geometric abstractions formed of panes of luminous color. These powerful abstract investigations of space, light, and color evoke landscape and architectural forms as well as the psychology of place that defined the California coast during this time.
