This summer, stop by the de Young to admire the iconic artwork of Richard Diebenkorn. Made possible by the collaboration of the de Young, Diebenkorn family, and many public and private collections, the exhibition showcases 131 works and concentrates on Diebenkorn’s “Berkeley Period.”

Richard Diebenkorn created some of his best-known pieces from 1953 to 1966, inspired by the rich setting of the Bay Area. Marked by saturated hues, strong form, and thoughtful composition, his paintings are distinctive and elegant. The exhibit showcases well-known pieces, including Seawall and Berkeley #3, as well as some of his lesser-known works.

Diebenkorn’s artwork is complimented by an exhibit of the photography of Rose Mandel. Her photography provides a deeper look into Diebenkorn’s studio and inspiration, further illuminating this pivotal time period in Bay Area art.

The exhibit will be on display from June 22nd through September 29th. For ticketing information and promotions, visit
