Delicious Metropolis - The Desserts and Urban Scenes of Wayne Thiebaud

Author(s): Wayne Thiebaud; Kelly Purcell (Foreword by)

Cookery

Delicious Metropolis brings together two of Wayne Thiebaud's most celebrated bodies of work: desserts and cityscapes. Between the two, fascinating juxtapositions develop. The layers of a Neapolitan cake echo the shadows cast across a street in the late afternoon. The pastel hues of iced sponge cakes match California's candy-colored houses. Curators, critics, and artists guide the reader through the book via insightful bite-size essays. This gorgeous hardcover offers fans and newcomers a refreshing and accessible way to enjoy the oeuvre of this iconic American painter. Complete with multicolored page edges evoking the layers of one of Thiebaud's mouthwatering cakes, it's a treat for art lovers, city-dwellers, and gourmets alike.
