This book presents for the first time a comprehensive overview of this New Mexico period, and investigates the critical role it played in Diebenkorn’s exploration of the idiom of abstraction and the maturation of his art. It also demonstrates how New Mexico’s desert landscape and light affected Diebenkorn’s artistic route toward figurative painting and the landscape-inspired abstractions of his greatly acclaimed “Ocean Park” series.
