This exceptional catalog features a deeper, more hidden aspect of the American artist: the works found in his sketchbooks, which feature mostly nudes, portraits and landscapes. Carefully assembled and expertly commented, this catalog brings to light some of the most intimate aspects of Diebenkorn's work, allowing an insight and a comprehension of his method and his artistic mind, that his usually exhibited works withhold from us.

Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) was an American painter and printmaker. First associated with Abstract Expressionism and the Bay Area Figurative Movement, he later started a series of geometrical, lyrical abstract paintings, which under the name of Ocean Park paintings, brought him worldwide acclaim.
