Wayne Thiebaud on Morandi

Wayne Thiebaud, painting, detail.

Larry Groff posts a video of Wayne Thiebaud discussing his work and the work of Morandi. 

In addition to revealing the direct influence of a Morandi painting on an early painting of sandwiches, Thiebaud discusses a variety of topics including caricature: "If you take something like caricature for instance, which is very much a central aspect of all painting, then caricature represents a way in which, probably, stylistic variants can be determined. If you use caricature in terms of someone like Bonnard - or Morandi - they're caricaturizing their forms, and that makes them unique, gives them a new identity."

Wayne Thiebaud at Museo Morandi is on view through October 2, 2011.
