"[Wayne Thiebaud] is required reading for those who have a healthy appetite for provocative art."
"This comprehensive monograph of more than 200 illustrations can literally be considered eye candy. American artist Wayne Thiebaud is famed for his brightly colored canvases of cakes, diner pies, pastries, ice cream cones, candy and brightly colored gumball machines. . . Often aligned with the Pop Art movement of the '60s with which he came of age as an artist, Thiebaud has also painted lipsticks, women's shoes and toys in the same simple but ideal manner, as if they were Platonic essences. Whether still lifes or landscapes, Thiebaud's paintings are akin to visual Prozac; you simply cannot be in a bad mood looking at them."

"While Thiebaud is best known for his heavily pigmented still lifes of cakes, pies, and candies, [this] book shows his broader range, from vibrant landscapes depicting highways and farmland to portraits of solitary figures. . . The texts examine Thievaud's influences as well as his impact on the art world and the individual viewers of his work."
