"French Fries"
by sabine7 / May 25, 2005


Wayne Thiebaud's signature food paintings of the 1960's began with his oil on canvas study of French Fries which he followed up with a variety of desserts. Thiebaud's fast food fixation has placed him among the pre-Pop art pioneers, but this is based purely on subject matter as his painterly style marks him as more of a realist. There is no exaggeration or outlandishness to his simple style, and indeed, Thiebaud's take on pop culture evokes a nostalgia for the days gone by of a pre-Atkins kitchen.
